I'm looking for any tips or websites on pumping. I'm going to be exclusively pumping (for many reasons that I don't feel need to be shared with anyone so anyone who starts in on me for it will be ignored entirely). I have a Medala Pump in Style Advanced and have been pumping for about a week, getting about 15 oz per day. I'd like the maximize my output to save as much milk as I can. My child is just over one week old and taking about 2 oz per feeding.
What is a good schedule?
What amounts should I be looking for as a good amount for each session? (So far, I'm getting between two and four ounces per session- usually closer to the two side)
Does the bra worn during the day make a difference (underwire, no wire, sleep bra, etc)?
Have you used any of the milk saving devices (like Milkies, or the Avent breast shields) in conjunction with pumping?
Any other tips are appreciated!
