Re: Want to BF again after 3 wks of form
Also, you need to use a good pump. A lot of moms try to get by with cheap pumps- manual pumps or single electric pumps or lightweight double electric pumps. Those will not cut it when you're trying to relactate. You want a hospital-grade rental pump (preferable) or a Medela Pump in Style (at least). Whichever pump you use, make sure the breast shields are the correct size to ensure maximum stimulation and milk removal.
I can understand your reluctance to pump at work given that you might have to pump in a bathroom. But you might not have to- depending on where you live and work, you may be legally entitled to a clean, non-bathroom pumping space. But even if you're not and the bathroom is your only option, I would still choose pumping there over not pumping at all. If you don't want to give your baby that milk you don't have to, and pumping during the workday will help you maintain supply.
