My question is are some woman just not able to pump any milk? I BF and have letdowns my son eats a lot! I have like 2-3 letdowns sometimes. But when it comes to pumping even when I do have a letdown I still only get 1/2 -1 ounce sometimes 2 if I am lucky, that is from both breasts! Sometimes I feel soooooo full my breast are extremely full because he's been going longer at night so in the morning they are very very hard and full so I think I am going to be pumping a lot and nope I still get 1/2 ounce to an ounce I've tried multiple pumps and am now using the medela pump in style. Also I might add that with my older dd she was in the nicu she was a 29 week preemie so I tried pumping for her and I got 1/2 ounce too from both with 30 mins of pumping every 2-3 hours until I gave up at a month. I felt pathetic taking in 1/2 ounce when moms were taking 8 ounces So can I just never be able to pump milk and why does this happen to some women? I have tried the smelling something of my babies and looking at the pics and pumping with him in the room and not in the room. The saddest thing is that I return to work in 3 weeks and I worry I will have to give up on nursing since If nothing comes out when I pump at work obviously my milk will dry up since the only time I will nurse is when I am home but I will be gone from 8:30am - about 7pm.
