    Haha I meant 3 1/2 WEEK old, not year old Can you imagine still pumping after 3 1/2 years if your LO had NEVER latched? Oh man, I'm not that patient.

    I have to do breast compressions while I pump to get more than one stream. That is the only way it works for me.

    I'm glad it's not just me. I've also noticed that the more I use a pump, the easier it gets.
