My son was born last Friday and quickly taken away and flown to another hospital. He is in the NICU and is scheduled for open heart surgury on Thursday. Not only are we doing a lot of crying around here, but to top it off I wanted to BF and can't since he is there and I am here. We try to get up there every day but will have to miss today due to financial reasons. Well, he can't be fed right now, but they encourage pumping and storing for when he does come off the ventilator. My Medela isn't working for me, don't know why. I have never been good at pumping. Now my breasts are very engorged and feel lumpy. How can I get the milk flowing? I may try to hand express into the Avent storage containers I have. But need help figuring out how to get it even going. They hurt so terribly I dread even touching them. But must try for my son's sake. I tried heat for the pain, which felt good, but didn't get the milk going. Any info would be ever so helpful!
