Re: First Time Nursing Mom... HELP!
Not sure if this is an option for you but a month after I returned to work I had to rent a hospital grade pump because I could not keep up. So I have been using it since Nov and my LO is currently 9.5 months. I rent the Medela Symphony. i also use Pumpin Pals flanges, the set with 3 sizes as somedays I do need a different sized flange. In a single good pump session I can get 6 to 8 oz in under 20 min. With my Medela PISA I was getting very little even at 30 min. I also hydrate constantly from the time I wake up till about 6pm and I take Fenugreek.
AS PPs said, you're no failure. The choreography of working/pumping is a whole other job itself.
