Needs understanding on milk production
These were hospital grade pumps so only needed to hold the suction cup to my boob.
Even now if I need to express - I feed bub from one boob and pump the other. Rest bub on a pillow at boob level and that means my hands are free to attach pump on. Then hold pump with one hand and the other hand holds bub or massages pumping boob.

What hold do you use for that? I use cradle hold or DS is on the breast feeding pillow propped really high up my waist but his lower body will be where the free boob is, I can't even place the breast shield over my breast. I pump after he nurse, to empty breasts as much as I can.

I'm going to make lactation cookies today - if you were closer mum2two I'd bring you some (I'm on the Gold Coast). Good luck with the breast feeding - I'm hoping to bf too (bubs coming out on Monday)

I have baked tons of them but in no mood to eat and no time too. They still in my cupboard.
Missiemack, left boob hurts bad but I still feel letdown, think its engorged though not rock solid but so painful to massage. Am I to grit mt teeth and do that? Hard let bub nurse nipple is too painful even to use pump the shield hurts it bad at lowest setting!

I bf DS1 for 6 months wo all these blocked ducts or milk blisters though my supply was low and I hardly latched him on.
With DS2, I latch him on very often, express too but I keep getting issues. My supply just increased and now left boob so sore. And he is only almost 3 weeks old.
Think I have to see my GP later and hopefully find out what's wrong.
Discouraged. Exhausted. Hating bfg ATM.
