The theme for this year's World Breastfeeding Week is "Breastfeeding and Work." While we know that all parents work tirelessly to take care of their bundles of joy, this year's theme highlights the moms who take breastfeeding on-the-go with pumping.

We asked the HuffPost Parents community to share, in one photo, what pumping has been like for them. Whether they're pumping at a wedding or in the car to work, these moms are making it work.
