Well, thanks, but first of all, I'm trying to immitate by DD's nursing schedule, and second: I'm still at work:-), so I have to work in between me pumping, eating or drinking (once again, in order to have something to pump)
[COLOR="Blue"]Wow, I admire you [U]so much[/U] for maintaining this pumping schedule! :clap[/COLOR]
You think? I hope so. With my DD2 I pumped like a maniac: sometimes I'd go every hour for 10-15 min, because it was vanishing! It didn't help:-( The only mistake I made, I think, is that i thought that I lost all of it, but probably I still have something for her to be nursed in the evening and at night, I judged by the pumping output and I know better now. Lets see.
[COLOR="Blue"]Nevertheless, they are still useful- the additional stimulation is worthwhile even if you're not getting a lot of milk.[/COLOR]
I tried different size of shields with my DD2, didn't try different pump brand, as I have no idea where and how can you TRY without bying. My friend used a very simple evenflo pump that she swore by, she didn't even wanted to use the Swing, so I'll take it from her to try and if i like it, I'll go and buy the new one.
[COLOR="blue"]Okay, that sounds like an issue with the pump, the shields, or your response to pumping. I would keep trying different pump and shield configurations, and see if something helps. [/COLOR]
I tried pictures, videos... Will try her clothes tomorrow too.
[COLOR="blue"]You could also try bringing one of your baby's used outfits with you and smelling it while you pump- that could help trigger a letdown...[/COLOR]
Thanks for your advises. I already feel better.
BTW, my today's story:
pumped 2oz in the morning at home after nursing the baby, then at work around 2oz at 7am and another 2oz at 9. It took me 30 minutes with visualization of everything i could imagine to calling home to listen to my DD3 to get just 2 oz. Honestly, its so damn frustration! And I know I have milk! If I'd stay home, I'd be able to nurse her probably till 1yo, but the way it goes now, I don't know...So sad
