Everyone I know who tried manual had no results. The electric one is the only way to go. It's expensive but completely worth it. You can rent from the hospital too or borrow from a friend. :)

Hi, I had great results by pumping OFTEN! I had the electric pump and the bra which allowed me to hands free to read while pumping. When my son ate I would jostle and move his cheeks and arms if he started to fall asleep. Once he was finished eating I hooked up both breasts and pumped til dry. If he was sleeping for longer than normal I would pump. When my supply seemed to drop some I would pump every 2 hours. When doing this consistently I was able to put away enough bags of milk for 4months after we stopped breastfeeding. Hope this helps.

I was producing not enough to exclusively breastfeed my little one but after frequent use of Healthy nursing tea I was able to produce more than enough.
