On Wednesday, January 24, Bailey took to Snapchat to get transparent with fans. The 23-year-old shared a photo of herself with her tank top lifted over her bra in what appeared to be a dressing room.
Bailey then added context before requesting advice from other mothers.
“mama had to pump! any mommies who breastfeed and go to work while having to take pump breaks? any advice for me? i’ve been trying to remember to pump but sometimes i just skip some sessions because it’s hard to keep up,” she wrote.
Additionally, in a post shared before that one, Bailey gushed over her “boys.”

Social Media Weighs In
Social media users quickly entered The Shade Room’s comment section to share their advice for Bailey.
Instagram user @lovejessie522 wrote, “It’s supply and demand… the more you pump, the more you produce! Don’t forget to pump in the first 3 months so your body can get regulated…. good luck! And congrats!💜😊”
While Instagram user @milkymamallc added, “@hallebailey pumping routinely is so important for your milk supply. It’s better to pump every 2 hours for just 5 minutes than spacing pumping sessions out and pumping for a longer duration.”
Instagram user @jakademik_md wrote, “My wife be using that handheld willow pump, it’s pretty clutch, we just be talking and I hear ‘wooshu wooshu wooshu’ like oh I didn’t even know you were milking yourself rn, weird but cool”
While Instagram user @angelhookah added, “Breastfeeding mom of four girls. I’m still breastfeeding, my youngest who is 2 years old , but she will be cut off soon, lol. The best advice I can give you is to try to pump every two to three hours so you can build your milk supply. Consistency is key. Best wish”
Other social media users appeared to still be a little upset over Bailey keeping her pregnancy private.
Instagram user @iluv_pynk wrote, “Just google sis, we still a lil mad 😅”
While Instagram user @jazzalyse joked, “Not you hiding the pregnancy now you want our advice 😂… Girl, we hiding the advice 😂😂”
