Am desperately trying to build my supply for my 4 month old who has had weight gain problems due to labial tie and posterior tt. I just rented a Lactina Slect and have been pumping for 10 days and hardly get an ounce or half in one session. When I hand express after there is still more milk but the pump is not getting it out. I need tips on how i can get the best result with this pump. I cant change the pump - so I have to learn to work around this. Waiting keenly for responses!!!
Need Tips on using Lactina Select
I don't use a Lactina but I do use a PIS for pumping at work. I highly recommend that after the initial milk letdown you do some form of compression, likely what work for me won't work for you so you'll just have to see what does help you. You might want to turn up the pressure too, I get twice as much when I have it on a higher setting. Relaxing is a huge part of it too. I find that when I concentrate on how much is coming out, how much I think I should pump, etc that I don't get much. But, if I do something while pumping, reading, checking FB, etc that since I relaxed my output was better.
On the TT topic, did you get it clipped?
