Re: Is this normal? Novice to pumping...
Sounds normal to me. If the flanges are bothering you you can put some olive oil or lanolin on them so your skin isn't sticking to the plastic. It's possible your flanges aren't the right size for your breasts though.
It does kind of make your nipples misshapen, that's totally normal.
And that output is pretty good for only 10 minutes.
