I am using Avent pump which has petals. Is this what you suggest I rotate to apply equal pressure? Or do you mean the positioning of the nipple in relation to the suctioned area? But in either case, it sounds like a good idea to make sure to apply suction equally. I'll try it out.
So far I have drop off another pumping session and is down to 4/day. I am using hot water bottle wrapped in face towel with each session to encourage the milk to flow out better to prevent plugging.
With regards the cabbage leaves, is this where I should apply refrigerated cabbage leaves? Do you know how soon it works and for how long each time and how frequent I should apply the leaves on my breasts? If I have cold packs, can I use those?
Thank you for your great suggestions! They are greatly appreciated.
