    Hang in there!

    Getting 2oz pumping in ADDITION to nursing is GREAT!

    IME I can get more when I pump when it REPLACES a nursing session. Also - most people have a higher supply first thing in the morning. So if you are pumping in ADDITION to nursing, try pumping after baby's first morning nursing session.

    Some people find it helps to do breast compressions while pumping. Here is a VIDEO which may help.
