Seems like you are an old pro at this pumping thing too Nicole! I have a Medela PIS and I love it! But this is my first baby and I figured the expense was an investment for the future. I never had much luck with the hand pump and forget about trying to hand express. Any suggestions there? Do you have a routine you do before pumping? Like to relax and encourage let down. When do you stop pumping? Just wondering. Thanks for any answers you may have.

Yep the key is to relax. I was overfull, it was painful that's why I pumped. I try to close my eyes since I don't have a pic of Ashlyn here... sometimes I bring up TBC and look at a pic I posted...

I stop when either A) I haven't gotten milk in a while such (4-5 mins) or B) my nipples get sore. than i know i've had enoug!!

Really relaxing is the hardest part, not watching how much I got, and tuning out things that distract me/stress me
