Breastfeeding nightmare! (xp)
So yesterday I pumped three times at work and only got 3oz out... total (I use the Medela Harmony manual pump)! I was so upset about it, and freaked out that I wasn't going to be able to pump enough out for him when I'm here at work that I went straight over to the hospital to rent an electric pump. I spent an hour talking with the LC about which model would be best and she showed me how to do everything. I spent $60 on what she told me was the "Cadillac" of breast pumps (this was to rent it for just one week just to try it out... $17 for the week and $45 for the breast kit with the bottles and pumping needs), used it twice last night, and only got DROPS out!!! I'm so unbelievably frustrated I don't know what to do. I had it up on the highest possible setting and NOTHING! I get more out of my manual pump! How is that possible? Am I drying up already? Thank God I'm getting off early today and am off tomorrow so that I can pump like a maniac (probably with my manual!) for when I have to work on Monday, and then Tuesday on my day off I can take that dumb machine down there and let them show me what I'm doing wrong. I went and bought some fenugreek thinking that maybe my supply is dwindling... Any thoughts?
