I've just started to try and express milk for DD2 who is 8 weeks.
I tried twice yesterday morning and twice again this morning and only have 30ml total.
I've tried stimulating the breast first then attaching the pump but this didn't help - I could see droplets of milk but then it stopped when I put the pump on.
I'm fairly confident that I'm using it correctly as I used it with DD1 successfully. I could easily get 100ml in 10-15 minutes.
I tried to express about two hours after the first feed of the day. Would I be better getting up earlier and expressing before the first feed?
DD2 feeds really well from the breast so I don't think it's a supply issue.
