I let him go till he loses interest, sometimes its about 15 minutes total, this last time, he fed for 40 minutes (20 per side)...
I have always fed one side at a time so my body is used to it. Now that he spaced his feedings every 4 hours or so I have had to manually pump some in the middle of the night to help with the pain. I just squirt into a cloth until I am comfortable. Otherwise in the morning I pump and usually once in the afternoon (to help build my stash). I have this pump and LOVE it.
