Hi all, I posted a few weeks ago regarding pumping while I am away for my daily four hour shift at work. I was advised since I had such little time on my break to go ahead and just pick up a session at home. This did not work out to well for me so I have been pumping at work. My issue is that I only have about ten-twelve minutes to pump to make it back in time and not have to stay later at work. I have a very fast let down, maybe 30 seconds to respond to the pump and then am able to get a little over two ounces on each side by the time I need to go back.
I have been reading that you should pump for at least 20 minutes so am wondering if I am doing damage to my supply by having such a short pump session. By the time I quit my milk has slowed to just a trickle so I think I am doing an ok job emptying my breasts but they may not be completely empty. Is it a problem to not completely empty them each time?
