Re: Pump or hand express?
I also had good amounts hand expressing, BUT, I would spray EVERYWHERE and I couldn't catch it all.
It's late so if I am off here forgive me. You are puming to increase supply right? then i would say skip the pump and hand express. THe more you remove, the more your body will make...
If you want to continue to use the pump, here are some things to do it increase flow..
make sure you are relax, stressing and pumping don't work
massage breast before attaching pump
drink something warm, being cold and pumping don't work either
Focus on baby (look at baby or pic, smell an article of clothing)
keep massaging breast while pumping.
