While I don't pump exclusively, I have been pumping to help increase my supply after a lot of difficulties, but my problem is not knowing what to do with DD while I pump.
My husband works from home, which helps sometimes, but most of the time it's just her and I in another part of the house. Some days I can't pump at all because she just wants to be held. I have tried feeding on one side and pumping the other, but I have LARGE breasts and I find this quite uncomfortable (and difficult).
So I'm curious, what do you ladies do when you need to pump and you're all alone? I feel bad when she starts fussing, and most of the time the milk litterally stops because I get tense wanting to deal with her instead of making her wait while I finish pumping.
When I get the chance I do compressions and massage to make sure the girls are good and empty (lol), and so I don't end up with just formilk, so I feel like it's not even worth it if I know I'll only have 5 minutes.
Frankenstein never scared me. Marsupials do. Because they're FAST.
