Thread: Pumping taking too long

    Some of these suggestions have already been mentioned, but I'd try the following:

    - replace your membranes
    - look at a picture of your baby and take lots of deep breaths to relax
    - ensure all the parts are tightly pressed together
    - check your tubing for holes
    - purchase some "massaging" type nipple shields

    Good luck!

    Do you always pump at the same time of day? I was and noticed the same situation...it was taking longer for my let-downs, etc. but I now try to pump three times during my work day but at different times. Ex Day 1: 9a,12p,3p Day 2: 9:30, 11:30, 3:30 etc.

    Hope that may help!
