Yes, I am here.
I have a few q's for you, first, not directly related to pumping. But that might help us work on you getting more milk into your dd.
Do you work full time? 5 days/wk?
How old is your dd?
Do you co-sleep?
On working days, how many times does she nurse when you are together?
I don't know what "inserts" Laila might have been referring to. Medela makes different size flanges to better fit different nipples/areolas.
Most moms do better with all that pumping, by using a rental pump. The Medela Lactina and the newSymphony
are very efficient and comfortable. You can get a hands free kit, and a double pump kit, which will increase your relaxation and bfing hormones.
Get the book Nursing Mother Working Mother for much more abt pumping than I could say here.
Massage your breasts, then lean over and jiggle, before pumping, to stimulate and get gravity working. Apply warm wet washcloths. It should get easier to pump as you train yourself to letdown to it. Bring a worn item of baby's clothes to work with you, and sniff...!
In some cases, baby will start to sleep a lot at daycare and then want to nurse very frequently when you are reunited. Co-sleeping is a must for this.
