    Re: Gone all day with no pump

    Thank you! She says she's pumping to bring back to her son. She did mention another pump! I should ask her if she's comfortable with me borrowing one!

    Searing pain in one nipple

    For a couple days, on my left nipple, there has been what appears as a clear blister. At first, I thought maybe my baby having her first tooth was what was making it painful for her to nurse on that...

  14. Re: Second pumping never yields as much

    Thank you all for the advice! I pump twice, but I do like 30 minutes each, which sucks because I have to clock out each time I pump. :( Maybe if I added three sessions, I could cut the time shorter?...

    Re: pump fatigue (just a vent)

    Ugh, I'm with you. I only work part time and pumping is a huge hassle. Other people just don't get why it's so annoying sometimes.
