    Got a ? ladies - When you pump do you just hook it up and pump away or do you squeeze the boob or massage it as you pump??

    Also how much are you ladies getting out of each boob when you pump now???
    I actually do both. My right gives generally an oz more than the left so I squeeze the left while the right pumps away, then squeeze the right just a bit before I finish.

    In the early morning I get 4-5 per bb...mid morning/early afternoon 2.5-3.5 per bb....evening/late evening 2-3 per bb. I put away at least 10-20 oz a day in the freezer and feed her w the rest. I try and pump then feed her more now bc otherwise she overeats and pukes, but w the bottle I can measure out 4oz and she does better. (still nurse a couple times a day but usually later in the day). Sometimes she eats a little more sometimes a little less, but still pretty much every 2-2.5 hrs during the day.

    I've icreased my pump time for 20-25 minutes. At 15, I just wasn't getting empty. I pump for 10-15 then massage each bb (the Pedi showed me how, weird I know, Lol!) - Do a clockwise push down motion towards the nip like you're pushing the milk out. Then I hook back on for another 5-10 minutes.

    What setting do you use your pump on - This ? is for everyone?

    Sometimes I don't think I have it high enough...but it's at mid+ level.

    Hmm...Need I really say anything about Kaylin's poop schedule?? My child goes up to a week w/o anything and then explodes everywhere. The other day, she had a bad one...I cleaned her up and then she had another one not even 10 minutes after. I've had to bleach so many things of hers!

    So now, I don't even give it a 2nd thought if she doesn't go for several days b/c I know what's coming.

    Glad you are better!

    Sometimes I have it at the middle level but others the high. I have no clue what I'm doing so I've used the high before when I was trying to empty out a very full boob! Not sure though if that's the right way to go about it.

    Em went to pooping maybe every other to every other 3rd day and then all the sudden about 2 weeks ago went back to once a day. Every now and then shes goes twice a day, but usually once!

    Shes been blowing out of her diaper almost everytime so we moved up to twos thinking it would help.. WRONG, she still shoots out the back!

    I'm still only getting about 2-2.5 oz from each breast when I pump. I pump for about 15 minutes on a fast pump setting, but the suction is not quite at the mid-way point. If I turn the suction up higher it hurts! I don't have time at work to pump more than 15 minutes... I feel like my supply has been on the low side lately, but it seems as though Desi's getting enough. I haven't heard any complaints! LOL

    Evan has been having some latch issues over the past few weeks so we went to bf support group at our hospital yesterday. It sure was a very emotional experience! It breaks your hear to see Moms crying because of bf issues, especially with little newborns. Of course the LC took one look at Evan and thought what the heck are you doing here? They think he keeps unlatching and fussing because of overactive letdown and a big milk supply. They showed me some modified positions that should help and so far they are working. Evan is weighing in at 14.06 lbs...my little chunker!

    I am very happy that there is are so many bf resources in the community and that we went to get help. There were many days over the past few weeks where I almost threw in the towel but couldn't do it!

    I think that today I've pumped the most I have ever pumped. I've been taking the Fenugreek & Blessed Thistle, just upped it to 2 of each pill - 4x daily. Today, I pumped around 14 ounces total. Now, I still have to go home & bag it so that is just a guess. I hope those herbs are finally kicking in.
