Re: How do I help my body respond to a pump?
i know it's not the normal advice, but when i was simultaneoulsy trying to build supply and a freezer stash, i would wait til almost nursing time and pump then, because i knew it would maximize my output, then nurse - because i knew DS would work for it/could get more out than the pump. that worked for us. and i put together a little slide show of pictures, with a soundtrack of him eating - easy to do in picasa. it was about 2.5 mins long, i played it twice til i got a good letdown. compressions, stretch, rub my shoulders, relax.
