    Default Letting down for the pump but not LO????

    Recently my let down takes FOREVER when I'm nursing but it's pretty immediate when I pump. It's almost as if my body responds better to the pump.

    My little guy is very very patient but I can't help but feel terrible when he is obviously distraught at nursing for 10+ minutes with no let down.

    Has anyone had this happen? Is there anything I can do?

    It makes no sense because I can only get one let down with the pump EVER no matter how long I go. Once I let down for LO I can have a few. I have a terrible supply as it is even after all the possible combos of herbs and what have you. UGGGHHH if it's not one thing it's another. I really hate this.

    Not too sure what you could do besides maybe using the pump to get your let down to start sooner and then put little one on. I know that's probably what I would try.
