    I get literally nothing but a dribble. My breasts just do not let milk flow when expressing, whether by hand or a manual pump or an electric pump. I get nothing, zero, nada.

    But my babies are always fully breastfed into toddlerhood

    Same here. My body won't respond when expressing but gives plenty of milk to my babies. DS2 currently dozing in my arms is trying to outgrow his size 0's at 12 weeks so he's doing fine!

    For the first few times of pumping I couldn't get a drop, but I had to syringe feed DD at one stage and I would have to try so hard to get in the frame of mind for my milk to come. I could never hand express and can't get a drop now when I try, I think it was just those few weeks when I was desperate to keep bf dd

    I can usually get 150 ml after a feed and probably would get more if I tried. My bottles only hold 150 and I can never be bothered doing more than one. Moooooo!

    The most I ever expressed from one breast was 20 mls. 3 lactation consultants, 4 day clinics, 6 weeks of home visits, hospital pump and 2 months on motilium. An average 24 hours was less than 70mls. It nearly broke me.

    I think the most I ever got was 50ml from both boobs combined. I was lucky to get 30ml on a normal day. I always had a low supply though. 150ml is great!

    I have a great supply. I don't often express but can do 150ml each side.
