Re: pumping at work, lack of bm
I too find that I have less milk as the day wears on. For one thing if you work standard hours (morning to afternoon) most people find that they have the most milk in the morning. I however find that even working evenings I have less milk each time I pump. However, as time has gone one and my LO has gotten older I find that I have more milk and that I respond better to the pump. Try and see if you can get multiple let downs, I practiced at home some (I pump in the morning and at night even on my days off) the idea is when milk stops flowing you go back to the fast suck/low suction again until you get another letdown. I also find that I do better when I read a parenting/laleche magazine while I pump. Hang in there!
