    That is great Donann, at least you had gotten some good amount this time. You weren't by chance having a menstrual cycle at the time were you? Possibly a change in hormones? I found my milk is not as abundant during these times. I was also going to suggest drinking an extra glass of water or beer
    about an hour before pumping.

  • Kristen,

    Not on AF, I am actually taking Domperidone for 4 wks to up my supply as I am one of those "lucky" (super amount of sarcasm there....LOL) ones that has her period every month after birth, no break....ugh. I know that my supply is good now as Kaden can go 3 to 4 hours b/w feedings, sometimes longer. My boobs just don't want to cooperate with the pumps this time. I will keep trying tho, I will be a trooper. I am using the Ameda Purely Yours right now and I also have a Medela Minielectric and PIS Traveller. (Ameda is on loan from my SIL until my new part for the PIS arrives.... I am not a crazy pump lady....LOL)

    I just get mad sometimes cuz Kyle bugs me and laughs and says.......Gee you have DDD boobs and that is all that you can get???? You should be able to fill a milk carton.....

    HAHAHA Kyle (he actually stopped for a while when I got mad and stuck the pump to his bare chest at full suction....LOL.....that was a sight to see)
