I'm a working mommy, and like many moms around the 4 month mark, my production has gone down a little bit (or so my obgyn nurse said it was normal because nursing periods are further apart because my girl is sleeping for longer periods). So I've been pumping more. My breast feel full, but when I pump little to nothing comes out. However, when I manually express my milk comes out and my daughter appears to be getting plenty! She is 90th percetile for weight, has many wet/dirty diapers, and she is extremely happy and after a feeding she pulls away from the breast with milk running down her face and a big smile followed by her usual burp and a little spit-up. Has anyone else had this problem? Do you think it is my pump? I have a Medella Pump In Style but it feels like it is pumping the same as before... Any thoughts? I have contacted teh Medella people, but any other thoughts? Suggestions?
