I figured out my problem

I know some of you may not care, but this is a big part of my life right now, so I am going to blog about it. The last few days of trying to pump have been nothing but frustration. I began to think that I was probably just losing my milk (sad) because I was barely getting anything each time I pumped. I resorted to self expressing into my pump, which worked fairly well but took a lot of time & gave me sore hands. So, this morning, I noticed that my hand pump just didn't have a lot of suction, so I started to examine it. The plastic bladder (yes, that is what it is called, I looked it up) that creates the suction has a hole in it from use. So, I had to find a replacement and order it online. Hopefully it gets here soon because my other hand pump is terrible & makes my hands really sore.

I had a problem like that too with mine! I had to get a new pump all together, luckily I called the company and they sent me one for free. Glad you were able to figure it out!

I am so glad that helps you! Breastfeeding is such a blessing and can yet be so stressful. I find that the best blessings usually are. I hope it all works out!

Do you not have an electric one?....If you don't I have one that is amazing. Like the hospital ones. I can send it if you need it. Hope it gets better soon
