I've been complaining about how I.don't have enough milk to feed Eli.
I've been pumping for 34 mins and milk is still coming.
Is this too long to pump or should I keep going untik it stops?
Usually I stop at 20 whether it's still coming or not. I guess this could be a problem?
Delight yourself in the LORD, and He will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4
It is recommended that you stop 5 minutes after the last little bit IF you are building supply. If you want to stay constant quit when the flow does. If you want to decrease it pump to desired amount and then quit.

I've been pumping for 20 minutes. I'll get drops at that point still but I still stop. I've noticed I've gone from 2 oz every time down to 1-1 1/2 oz. He normally nurses on one side so I pump the other side.
I pump 15-20 mins each time. I get milk in spurts. It will come for a while, pause, and then start up again. Maybe this is multiple let downs? I'm not sure what you'd call it. But I would probably continue to get milk like this as long as I kept the pump on. I have never had more than maybe 3 mins with no milk at all coming. If milk is still actively coming with each pull when I was planning on stopping, I wait for a pause and then stop.
