I have been breast pumping for a few days already. I pumped 15-30 mins per session.
I know it is not a good timing, but I just could not bear the pain, from the suction.
More tips and techniques need to be researched.
So lazy to compare, because I think it is just unfair.
I get 40ml (both sides) per session, which can only get an accumulative of one full 5oz per day. While others (a mom of an 11mths old baby) can do triple of what I do.
Read somewhere, "...being tense, stressed, angry or upset can block the milk from flowing so make sure you relax and enjoy your baby for feeds."
So Bapak, bear with mom, as much as mom bears the pain of breast milk pumping (and all sort of post delivery pains - backpain, the stitches, the pain at the v if i walk a lot).
Appreciate it a lot.
Mom loves Bapak, nonetheless.
Mom loves Alana, more.
