I've been pumping for the last six weeks. I know it takes time to get acclimated to the pump. That's why I've given my self so long. I am only able to express aprox. 2-3 ounces maybe usually two or less at each session. What am I doing wrong? I've increased my fluid intake, increased my caloric intake, pumped every two hours with the exception of 4-6 hours at night, I've tried pumping every four hours, I've tried using a manual pump. (two different kinds) I've found with one that my milk expression is awesome but the actual pumping action of the manual kills my arm! I hate the pump I have right now. I've sent parts in and had them replaced in two days, but still feel it's not working right! I'm considering buying the "Freestyle" but don't know if it's worth it... please help...
