I am pumping at work 3 times a day using a PIS Advanced. I keep reading that I should pump for 15-20 minutes a session, but I stop releasing milk after 8-10 minutes. I don't get a second letdown even if I continue to pump for an additional 20 minutes. I've tried looking at photos of my LO, calling his dad so I can hear LO in the background, visual imagery... nothing prompts that 2nd letdown.
Is there anything else I can do or is the 8-10 minute session enough? I'm getting about 3 ozs total from the session- 2 to 2 1/2 oz. from one breast and 1 from the other (I had surgery on that one that severed some milk ducts).
