Re: Not expressing enough!
When I pump at work, I find being able to relax is the most important... I go to a quiet office and look at pictures of my daughter... that helps. Then I usually go one the computer and read (like right now!) so that I'm not just watching the pump and obsessing about how much milk I get... I find that makes a big difference! It seems like when I am just watching the pump, I barely get anything but when I try to do something else, next thing I know, I've pumped 5 ounces (which is great for me).
I recently talked to my lactation nurse about needing to pump more and she said it was really important to make sure I was eating enough, getting enough calories, having snacks in between meals, and drinking lots of water. When you return to work it is easy to let these things fall to the wayside, but I find if I pay attention to my own nurtition this helps a lot.
