I tried to occasionally pump with my first son 8 years ago. I could never get more than an ounce and that amount was a miracle. This time around I will be in school full time and my boyfriend has told me he would love to do a bottle on occasion. I am curious if pumping will work better for me this time around though. I have never been a leaky girl, I breastfed my son for 6 months and never once has to wear a breast pad. I never had even a drip soak through my shirt. When I was nursing before, I attributed my lack of pumping success mostly to the pump I was using. It was a cheapy, but this time around I will be working with something better. Do you think it's possible to become a successful pumper even after my past experiences?Answer Question

Absolutely! With my DD 3 years ago, pumping sucked. I could never get more than an ounce. Not with a manual pump or an electric. With my son... we got a more expensive electric pump and it was amazing. I always got like 5 ounces from each side. I highly suggest his pump too.

Next question overall
Will I have more success pumping this time around?
