Re: Breasts not getting empty
Are you seeing a decreasing amount of milk? If not, I wouldn't worry too much about getting your breasts fully emptied.
However, there are some things you can do which may help, including:
- Pump more frequently.
- Try a different pump. Not all pumps work equally well for all women.
- Bring an article of your baby's worn clothing to smell while you pump, and a picture of your baby to look at- sometimes that stimulates a mom to let down more easily.
- Make sure you have the right size of breast shields to ensure maximum stimulation and milk removal.
