Pumping confusion. Advice needed! Lock Rss

Hey Guys,

I'm starting to pump to build up my milk stock in the freezer. My clinical nurse said to pump 5 minutes each side twice (so 5, 5, 5, 5) but when I do that I let down then go to the other side even when milk is still coming out. To me, it seems to mean I get less milk in the end.
Should I instead pump one side till empty and then pump the other side till empty without watching the time so much?
What do you do? Thanks so much.
Why dont u try pumping one side for a bit while bubs feeding. Then when he fin feeding one side take him to pumped side. If he has all them do other side if not fin pumping so u have 2 drained breasts and bubs still happy.
