Re: At my wit's end!!
Oh mama. Hug. You are not a failure! I can imagine how frustrating and disheartening it is to work for the bf for three months and then have it derailed by our infuriatingly insufficient parental leave policies. Family values, ha! Really, this is not something to feel bad about. First, i would def check all pump parts. Did you buy it new? It might be worth calling the company. Maybe first replace the valves.
Can you tell us more about your pumping routine? How often and how long? Breast compressions? Do you have a good spot to pump, where you can relax?
