I'm suddenly not producing anything when I pump at work! Help!

I use an Ameda purely yours. It's a year old but hasn't been used until my little one. All the parts are new. The motor part seems to work fine. I believe it fits right.

My lil one is 3 months. I had been pumping at work since 8 weeks. But just this last week y supervisor decided she didn't want me to pump. So now I can only pump at lunch and after 3.

I was producing fine until this. I look at pictures if him in my office when I pump.

You can get a baby blanket, look at a picture while pumping. Maybe the suctions arent the right size? How old is your pump? Maybe you need a new one. Over time i know for me its harder to pump as baby gets older.

I just thought of something else. How much is given while you're gone? How long are you gone?

Where do you work? The federal law states that you must get as much time to pump as needed! It can be unpaid time if it is outside of your regular breaks.

I've been leaving 4 - 2.5 oz bottles at daycare. He eats 3 sometimes all 4. And I also do premie nipples on dr brown bottles and given them the print out of how to bottle feed a breastfed baby. He breastfeeds at home. He does great at daycare never been told it isn't enough. My dh on the other hand over feeds. Grr!

He is at daycare from 8 to 4. His last meal with me is at 7:30 am before going.

If your business has a certain number of employees, it falls under federal regulations and your employer has to let you pump.

In Wyoming at an developmental preschool ( state ran) they were allowing me to pump at snack times but decided that two adults must be in the room and they won't provide me coverage.

How many total employees does the place have?
