Re: just back to work & pumping & now hu
A few thoughts: is the 27mm the right size for you? Have you referenced a size chart or just tried a bigger size? I know this helped me out immensely when I had this issue. Also why are you pumping for 10-20 min on each side? Is milk still being expressed the entire time? If not, at least while you are in so much pain, just limit pumping times to when milk flow stops. This is what I do when I get sore from pumping at work. Then when things resolve I pump the extra to stimulate milk production as usual.
