I'm nursing my 3rd child and am going back to work on Monday. I had a lot of trouble pumping with my 2nd child and I'm hoping to try some new tactics this time that might help me the 3rd time around. I have a Medela Pump-in-Style (the original), but I can't seem to get much milk out...I have to squeeze my breasts and make the milk come out during a pumping session. I'm thinking of renting a hospital grade pump...are they really that much better?
I successfully breastfed my oldest daughter for 3 years (I was lucky to be a stay-at-home at this time so I didn't pump at all), my second for 1 year, and I desperately want to nurse my youngest for a full year, too. Help!
