Hi, I've been exclusively pumping as my baby is not too good with his latch. I am ok with the pumping as hubby is happy to do the feeding.
What I want to know is if I pump every 1.5 hours or 2 hours, will I injure my breasts? I combine hand compression when I pump as I find that it doesn't hurt that much as compared to having the pump pull at the breast alone. Also it increases the output.
At the moment I pump every 3-4 hours.
Another question: seemed a bit daft but can soap get into the nipple? I've been pumping so much, my nipples are always moist and looked kinda "opened". I have not really been washing my breasts with soap, only on other body parts.
