    Default Will i ever stop pumping?

    I started when my DS was 3 mo old... that was almost 3 months ago. Gosh it seems like forever! lol So i've seen improvement in produciton but my flow isnt as great thought with minimal improvement. I dont know if you mamas wonder if you'll see the light at the end of the tunnel. I've tried funnel and breast compressions and sometimes they work but rarely. The pump does a great job on getting my milk out... i just it was the same with the baby. So my baby is shy a few days of being 6 months old and really it's only been 3 months of pumping... but it has taken a toll on my emotional self. Did u ever see the light?

    I hear you and want to know the same thing! My 8mth old DD is on a strike thanks to a hormonal change in me. She has only recently started taking my bm from a cup/bottle which is encouraging but at the same time I don't want nipple preference problems ontop of the strike!

    Hope you can see a light at the end of the tunnel. I'm pumping because I never really had a great supply to begin with and I'm trying to up my supply..
