I just purchased this pump today and I'm getting a little discouraged. I am not a big pumper - my LO will take a bottle, but he is almost exclusively breastfed (he's 5.5 months). Until today, I used an inexpensive electric pump and the most I could ever pump is 1.5 ounces. I just assumed that that was because my LO was getting all the rest. I somehow lost a part to my pump, so my DH bought me a Medela Harmony manual pump this morning.
Here's my problem - I'm getting almost nothing after about an hour of pumping. My hands are tired! I feel like I can't get a good rhythm going. Any advice? I would really like to be able to pump a little milk so that my husband and I can go out for a few hours on our own while my mom watches him.
