Re: pumping flange still too big?
any difference in output? is there an LC locally you can see to look at it? or a LLL?

Re: pumping flange still too big?
It's hard to say without seeing you in action so I would suggest waiting to see the lactation consultant today.

I would also suggest that you hand express. It can be more work (in a different way) but since you were pumping 45 minutes on that size, hand expressing for 10 or 15 minutes will actually be less.
