Dara I'm stuck at work so I can't reach my handy/dandy list of threads but if you do a search for "Nursing" threads you'll see that lots of folks have shared all their neat tricks for optimizing "your relationship with your pump"...... You'd be amazed at how many things there are to try!

getting breast milk after 7 days of pumping

I'm still only getting 10ml per bottle and was notified by the boys' nurses that they may not have enough to get through today.

I've already checked with a lactation consultant. What are some ideas you can give me to get this milk to do more than drip from me?

Thanks!
