Forgive me, I am in uncharted territory and short on time.
So I never pumped much the first time around. Hardly ever. Right now I am wanting to pump, and aside from making it a habit, I am having a hard time. I hardly ever pump more than 1-2 oz (between both breasts) but that is usually between feedings when I know I don't have much milk. So I tried to pump the other morning when I was really full (dd is going longer stretches at night and in the early morning). I knew I had a lot of milk but I was able to pump less than ever. I got maybe an oz?
I am wondering if it is the pump? I lose suction and have to keep reapplying the shield so I am thinking it might not be a good fit, but it does not appear to be too big or too small. So is it just a poor pump doing a lousy job with suction, possibly a wrong size, or just me?
I hate to buy a new pump if that is not really the problem.
Oh yes, I have an Ameda Purely Yours pump.
Any imput appreciated!
