    Hi! Congratulations on your little miracle baby!

    When I pumped for my 24 weeker, I had to do breast compressions while I pumped, or I got very very little. If you're already doing compressions, give it a try.

    my baby was born at 32 weeks as well! i am so glad you got a hospital grade pump- i was not getting much milk at first either but after about the 1st week all the sudden i had TONS! i pumped all through the night and tried at least a few times a day to pump every 2 hours instead of 3 hours- maybe just once or twice- i know you have other children (i had a 14month old when my son was born so i understand the time issues) i also would pump and when no more milk was coming out i would lean forward and shake a little, then start pumping again. did you say if the hospital has a lactation consultant? they can help check out the pump and make sure it all fits you correctly... i ended up needing to get bigger "horns" it was then that my milk really was coming! oh good luck! i know the stress of being with a baby in the NICU and having kids at home- it is a hard road ahead but your little miracle is so worth it! my son will be one year old in less than a month...so hard to believe, and he is still so cute and tiny- 14lbs! he is my tiny little miracle! this is all so worth it- i am amazed at moms who are willing to pump through everything else that is going on- i think pumping was one of the biggest emotional lifts that i had during that time (and the hardest physical part).
