I have a slightly embarassing question...
First, my LO is 8 months old (today!) and we are still pretty much only BF'ing. The problem is I've let my right breast almost dry up b/c I've used the other one WAY too much. I went back to pumping that side to try to increase the volume.
I pumped after he was first born for a couple of months and had no problems. Now, it hurts to pump! What changed? (And this is the weird part...) The pump is almost sucking more than my nipple in the part. So, when I am done it looks like my nipple is HUGE because it sucked the areola (sp?) into the part. This might be a silly question, but does this mean I just need a smaller part (sorry, i forget the name of the specific parts)? I just don't understand. I had NO problems with pumping at all when he was born. Very weird!
Thanks so much!!
