You can rent a hospital-grade pump, they are whoppers for sucking the milk. Talk to your ob-gyn's office about that, the rental is very reasonable (at least in our area). I used a Medela pump and thought it was good.
Mine is Tommee tippee electric one. One lady told me to remove the silicone thing
she said l can get more milk if l do that
lt didn't change much. l am drinking water and all kind of fruit juice from morning until evening. When l squeeze my nipple l have always milk coming out but l don't know why it doesnt come out with this pumper
Thank you very much for all your answers
some pumps are crap....what kind do you use?
Be patient. Also, I got frustrated thinking there was no milk when really I wasn't waiting for a let down.
thank u l think l should continue the way l do. after feeding her l will pump... one bottle of my own milk is like a dream right now. l hope it will work for me.
When you first start pumping to increase your supply you won't get much, after about a week you should notice an increase. Another thing you can try is to pump on the opposite side while she's feeding on one side and/or you could pump both sides right after she eats. That's what I was told to do when I started to increase my supply to stock pile some for when I went to work. I think it took me almost a week to get a few bottles, after about 2 or 3 weeks I saw a change.
Also, when you pump are you pumping both sides at the same time? That should help, and you should notice the side she last ate on you won't have as much as the other side.
