I am also pumping and stressed !!! I am a first time mom of a beautiful 2week old baby girl. I have a MIS pump but I am having such a hard time getting 1 oz total from both breast. At first I thought something was wrong with the pump so I troubleshot it with someone from Medela over the phone. The pump is in good working condition. My lactation consultant told me to pump after the 6am and 9am feeding. At 6am I only got a drop of milk out, at 9am I was able to get just under 1 oz from both breast total. Is this normal??
I called Medela once again, they told me that the suction of the MIS is obviously different than my LO and that eventually my breast will become accustom to the differences in suction. As far as my milk production, I am having no problems nursing my baby. She is getting more than enough milk. My troubles are with pumping. Help! Anyone. Thank you, Scouch.
