Expressing recommended because she's not gaining enough weight. Dropping production could be due to her slackening demand (she sleeps A LOT!), or because B*****d Cheating Husband moved out 2 weeks ago and I'm a mess. (so is the house and darling son of 3 yrs).
The ECHC loaned me a Medela manual pump and NOTHING COMES OUT! I'm using it after she has had both breasts. I wondered if I was just empty, but squeezing gives squirts and drops of rich milk. I re-apply the pump straight away (medium setting) and nothing again! I'm following the booklet to the letter.
Please help. If I don't get it right really soon I'll won't have a day to myself until she's weaned (prob 12 months old), and I really need some time to sort out my headspace after what BCHusband has done.
