The breast pump needs hacking. There are too many parts, which are easy to forget. They often aren’t the right size and need routine cleaning. Not to mention that pumping sound.

The weekend of Sept. 20-21, more than 150 breast pump users, engineers, designers, health care and lactation specialists, as well as educators will collaborate at the MIT Media Lab over two days to make breast pumping easier. This is all a part of MIT’s Make the Breast Pump Not Suck Hackathon.
