I have no choice after child #3, I have to go back to school full time. This means my baby (now 6 months) will be away from me all day. I'm not keen on formula, want to keep providing breast milk to him, so I will take time between classes to pump milk for him. My issue is i've never had luck with breastpumps. I have a manual one that I use on occasion, but can only get about 1 ounce per sitting out. I've tried all the warm washcloth, and whatever tricks i've been told, but nothign helps me get more. In fact, I get more if I do it using my fingers, though it takes much longer.
I need a good breastpump that will work relatively quickly (probably a double). Any suggestions? My body really doesn't like breastpumps..
