So I have a question. I'm EPing and hating the pump. I use a Medela Symphony (a hospital grade pump) and it works GREAT!!! But I'm just getting sick of pumping. So I've experimented with hand expression and I've found that I can get the same amount or more out than the pump can. My question is this: Can I sustain a supply with manual expression? I've toyed with the idea of doing pumping and hand expression. I'm thinking pumping 4 times a day and hand expression 4 times a day. Any thoughts or links or personal experience is greatly appreciated!!! Thanks in advance!

I also posted this in the pumping section.
