My DD is 2 weeks as of yesterday and im trying to build up a stash. I am having some issues with hand expression. I tried a pump, not really my thing plus I get a lot more when I hand express. The problem is I can only do it on my right side. No problems, I can empty the breast in under 10 min and get a good 3-4 oz. I try to switch and nothing... The milk barely dribbles out and it is not very comfortable. I know the baby is getting milk out when she nurses, I can here her franticly gulping it down. I have tried a warm compress and massage, but i only get a few squirts out at best afterwards. Any one else have this problem, or any advice on what to do? I dont want only one boob getting the extra attention!
