I've been trying to express milk for about a week (have a Medela electric double pump) and I seem to only really express milk during the "simulation" stage of the pumping. Once the pump increases to the "expression" stage, the milk flow slows down and eventually stops. I'm only expressing about 1/4 oz milk / session. Is there something wrong with the pump? Or am I just not yet expressing that much milk?
I usually try pumping about an hour after the baby's morning feeding. (Is there a better time of day to try?) The baby usually feeds from both sides so I can't feed and pump at the same time.
