    Oh, I see you live in NY. May I ask what part? You don't need to be specific, just a county. I am also from NY and can possibly recommend an LC.

    Your insurance company is required by law to pay for lactation services and support and supplies.

    Nursing is WAY easier than pumping, so I would work on putting baby to the breast as much as possible. Pump every 2 hours around the clock, for a total of 120 minutes in 24 hours, but it can take a week or more to see your supply increase via pumping alone. Breastfeeding is way better for your supply than pumping.

    with Susan. Always try getting baby to breast first and pumping second. Also try eating oatmeal everyday. That can help a bit too.
