    Well the closest one is about a 20 minute drive...and sadly I think I am dry , haven't been able to get but a few drops today when I pump.

    I want to get a manual pump, I think my hand pump is all worn out and isn't working no more, which is why my body is telling it that there is no one needing that few.

    Any Suggestions on how I can get it back up with the pump I have? Also, what is the best pump for me to buy? I will try and call someone definately because I do want to nurse my daughter.

    I say skip the pump. It's so hard on cracked nipples! And it's probably what is causing the bruising.

    Have you tried hand expression? http://www.llli.org/NB/NBMarApr96p51.html
