I need a little help on pumping. I've never really been able to get much out, and I'm not sure if maybe I'm doing something wrong. I have a medela electric double breast pump. And there's a knob with 1-5. Also, how long do you pump?

No one showed you how to do it?  How post partum are you ?  It took a week or more for me to get a significant amount (2 oz -4oz) in about 10 minutes.

This is the first time you have had to pump I am guessing.  I would see if the doctors office has a lactation specialist to help you to make sure the pump is working properly and you are latched properly to it.   I was taught within hours of dd being born how to use it.  Never a stupid question when you are confused or need help.   A dumb question would be " if i use my knee, how much will come out? " .
