Hard time pumping

Brittany • Mama

I know my supply is good because my baby is healthy and gaining weight but for some reason the pump just doesn’t agree with me I can pump for hours and barely get anything but the minute I take my boob out and self express it comes shooting out! I work 3 days a week and as my baby is growing it’s getting harder to meet the demands she needs while I’m away! I had pumped a lot when I was home on maternity but she hated the previously frozen milk so it all practically went to waste. I’m starting to get discouraged and almost want to start supplementing with formula but then I start having mom guilt I have a goal to have her fully breastfed until 1... I’ve tried fenugreek and the cookies and I don’t think they’ve helped at all. I also bought new attachments for the pump I know they are the right size.

Anyone else have this problem? What did you do?
