Im sorry, Brisco. Mine quit nursing completely at the end of her 3rd month. (she never nursed well) I have been EPing since. You are trying so hard. I feel for you. You are doing your best. Pumping doesn't seem to be going so great for you. I am sorry. If you feel you aren't emptying, you will loose your supply. Sometimes I have pump resistance. What works for me is a super hot shower, and then hand expressing. It is time consuming, and I have carpel tunnel so it hurts my hands, but it gets my breasts mostly emptied. Try to hand express a few times a day after pumping so that you don't loose your supply. Check out the EPers tribe for some great tips on pumping. Pumping is still an option, if you can't get him back to the breast. I am so sorry.
