Re: Shorter more often pumping sessions..
An hour!! WOW.. the longest I have ever went was 30 mins and I thought I was going to go nuts! I honesty only have 10-15 to put. I have a single pump so that's about 7mins per side.
I do compressions and massages b4 and during pumping.
I try to pump b4 he feeds instead of after. I know he will be able to pull more milk out afterwards. unlike the pump which barely gets a drop after he feeds
If I do pump after him, I try to wait about 30 mins.
I also pump while I am feeding him when I am home.
from 6 - until bed (on most days) I do nothing but nurse we just lay in bed until about 10 and then I put him in his crib.
On weekends I still pump when he feeds... not each time, but most!
I try not to use pump milk unless we are seperated. If I am there, he will nurse!
