    That's actually pretty good mama almost everyone here is talking about pumping replacing a nursing session, or exclusively pumping. when your nursing AND pumping at the same time, it's much different.

    Breastfeeding is an instinctual and natural act, but it is also an art that is learned day by day.

    I didn't mean it to sound like bragging, sorry!!! (I also had mastitis constantly because of over supply)
    I'd really rather be able to breastfeed from both sides! (if that makes any difference)

    I only bf from one side too! I haven't met (or heard!) of anyone else who has done this. Which side is your good one? (We nicknamed mine Jan and Marsha...Marsha makes all the milk and Jan is envious of her! )

    That's hysterical! I'm pumping now...I get 3-4 oz from the right and 1-2 from the left. I pump twice at work and then before bed. I make enough for three 4 oz bottles for day care and hopefully a little extra for just-in-case moments or to freeze.

    I take fenugreek...what's dopamaride (sp)?
