What do you do when your body no longer responds to the pump. I nurse most days but now i'm back in school for quite a large chunk of the day. I try to use my pump to help keep my supply up but i get just barely a few drops from 20 minutes of pumping. I need a way to express this milk when i'm not home and for some reason hand expressing doesn't work so well for me either, I can't control the spurts so they fly across the room.......not a good look when i'm not home.
I wondered if getting a manual pump might work, currently I have a dumple pump express medela. After nursing so long it might as well be nonexistent, it does absolutely nothing for me. What can i do?
