    Default For those that use Single pumps

    what do you do (if anything) to the other boob. If I am home, I try to feed baby and pump the other side. At one time I had a really "leaky" boob and when I was pump the opposite one, I placed a cup to catch the drippings... I feel my nursing pads sometimes and i am like "all the wasted milk"

    It's liquid gold, HURTS when it's wasted. I don't single-pump, but I know when I'm nursing just one baby at a time instead of both at once my other boob goes nuts, I just put pressure on it until the let-down is past so the milk doesn't come out. I haven't used them, but I think there are nipple shields that kind of collect milk, and there's these nursing pads called lillypads that are supposed to put enough pressure on your nipple to prevent the milk coming out, and if it does, it kinda seals the milk against your skin where you might be able to recover it.
