Hi. I am currently breastfeeding my almost 1 month lo and we have not had any real issues with milk supply once my milk came in. but I have started pumping to build up a supply in case I need to be away or out for work. I am having a problem getting my milk to let down when pumping.
At times I would pump for 10 minutes and barely get anything to cover the bottom of the bottle, it would just drip out.
I was airing out my breasts and feeding and while my lo was latched, my other breasts just started leaking like crazy. I quickly pulled out my pump and I got maybe an ounce and a half!
I continued to do this for the next few feedings and got more. Later that day, I tried pumping without my lo and did not get much of anything.
Is there anything I can do to help the letdown without my LO attached to me?
Right now I am latching and pumping in the mornings.
