    Default Getting More Milk When Pumping

    Ok so why haven't I ever read this article?????

    I was looking at some other info and stumbled upon this!

    the best part was:

    Incorporate the "Massage-Stroke-Shake" (M-S-S) technique as taught by Chele Marmet, an LLL Leader and co-Director of the Lactation Institute in Encino, California, USA: Double-pump for 5 to 7 minutes. Stop. Massage both breasts simultaneously in a circular motion similar to a breast self-exam. Stroke both breasts all the way around from the chest wall to the tip of the nipple in a straight line using only your fingertips. Then cup each breast with your hand, lean forward, and gently shake your breasts. Repeat by pumping another 5-7 minutes and M-S-S. Finish by pumping 5-7 minutes.
    If your pump parts include a flange insert for a smaller areola, use the inserts for the middle pumping to stimulate the areola and the milk sinuses located behind the nipple. The hands-on, M-S-S technique stimulates an increase in prolactin levels, which in turn increases milk production.
    Mothers whom I've helped to use this technique report an increase in milk pumped in a short amount of time.

    Yeah - I saw this too, but how to do this when hooked up in a hands free pumping bra??
    Do I have to take the bra off and MSS??
    This session would take over 30mins this way??
    Anyone have further suggestions??
