Ok so here it is, I tried for the first month to pump and breastfeed my baby, however I was too stressed and wasn't producing much milk so I gave up... However I was really upset that it wasn't working for me so when my little guy was 3 months I decided I would try again I was only getting a little pool around my nipple when i would try and pump and started taking domperidone... Now a month later I'm pumping approx 2.5 to 3oz with the Medela Pump in Style and just decided to rent the Symphony to help bring my milk supply up even quicker... I will keep updating you on how I'm doing for those of you that would like to know how it's going... YAY!!!! Sooo exciting for me!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, stress will get you every time! Good to hear you didn't give up. That's great! And good to hear it's working for you now.
