So I have started to pump for my stash...the power pumping wasn't working for me. What I do now is if Trey only eats on one side (after many burp sessions), I lay him down (if asleep) or put him in his bouncer or give him to MIL or FIL while I pump for 10 min on the other side he didn't eat from. Also if he is napping for more than 30 minutes, I go ahead and pump for 10 min on each side. So far I have been able to get a combination of 3-4 oz (combined from each side) in those 10 min and have in the freezer 13oz in the freezer. Of course some of that will be used Tuesday when I have to run errands for a couple hours and cannot take baby with me. Also if I feel a let down coming on and he is not hungry or fussy, I go ahead and pump 5-10 min. It is a slow start but it is better than nothing, right?!?!?
