Hi there, My son is 5 weeks old and I am pumping for him. We had a real rough start and without writing a novel it comes down to him not being able to latch and me having a low milk supply. I pump every two hours during the day and three during the night. I am getting enough to add one ounce of BM to every bottle. I was wondering if anyone could pass on some tips for pumping when not at home. I feel like I can't leave the house because I don't know where to pump when out and about. Also, about how long do you all pump for? Do you stop when your milk slows or keep going? Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the encouragement. After everything I went through to get my milk to come in at all I just can't give up now! It's nice to know some people understand. My family doesn't quite get why I don't just go to straight formula. Thanks!

I don't have any tips but I just wanted to say "good on you!!" a lot of people would have given up by now,I know I would have done so well done for carrying on this long.

My cousin couldn't breat feed her boy for the same kind of reasons an she was so upset with herself she ended up with postnatal depression, she's just had a baby girl and I was worried about her but she's managing to feed her fine! Odd isn't it
