    After watching I started using the massage to drain my breasts completely (as video suggests) thinking if I didn't my supply would decrease as 8 of 14 days I am away from my baby more than I am with him. I ended up with oversupply in one breast but definite increase in the other.

    Have you tried leaning forward? Are you getting good sprays or just dribbles of milk? If you're getting just dribbles, try moving your fingers further back on the breast a centimeter or two...or you can try pressing deeper into the chest. Remember that like learning to breastfeed, pumping and hand expressing are new skills and take time to master. Eventually you will develop your own techniques.
