If you ever pump what kind of pump do you have!? Have you used other pumps and what are your experiences? How often do you pump and for how long!?
I EP and currently use a medela lactina provided to me by Medicaid. But my Medicaid expires not 1st and I have to return it. I pump every 2-4 hours (it's very random) for approx 15min. I wanna space it out more to like every 4 hours and if I could shorten it as well or atleast one or the other, but I currently make TOO much milk (6-10oz session) my DF said it's enough and I can't keep stocking up or were no longer going to have room for OUR food and he's right. I just don't know how to go about it. I'm having a hard time shortening my time bc it seems like the milk really starts flowing around 7-10min and if I stop pumping it's still coming out. And I have hard time spacing it out more bc around 2-3 hours I get really full and start leaking. I've also had quite a few clogged ducts and I'm afraid of mastis. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
btw I just returned back at work this week. I work 28 hours. 3-4hour shifts and 2-8.5 hour shifts. My work seems to be pretty BFing friendly and gives me as much time as I need to pump.
