Re: New to pumping and it Hurts!
try adjusting the cycle and the suction, it takes a little bit to find your perfect setting, I have been using my PY for so long and love it was more than any other pump I have used (I have tried 5 others). For me I found that putting the cycle 1/2 way and starting with lower suction, then increasing suction to 1/2 when I felt the beginning of the letdown tingle, then all the way up when letdown was in full force was the most effective and comfortable way for me to pump
And I totally 2nd putting on some lansolin before you start.
