@Kayla I did 10 min each side this morning with the pump and filled 6 x 1ml syringes which I was super happy with!
@Taylor I tried the heat pack last night with no luck, so I think a hot shower / bath is my next attempt! I’m going to stop trying with my left for a little so I can get the right to catch up too lol. I’m only going for like 5-10m - how about you?!
I just started 2 days ago and I will have a warm shower or bath before then I use the heat pack for a while on my boobs. The right is certainly giving more than the left and the left will take longer to produce any, how long are you doing it for? I find it takes a while to get going. Good luck xx
@Kayla I had the opposite to you last pregnancy - my right side was so much more productive than my left side 😂 Good luck with collecting!
You go girl!!! That’s amazing! I just pumped and got 1.3ml out of both boobs. It’s probably the most I’ve gotten.
@Lauren honestly I was over the moon to see the first 2ml come out when I first tried it last night, and then this morning I thought I’d give it another go and it gave me 8ml all at once. Left side is definitely doing a good job of compensating for the slacker on the right hahah thank you! 😁
@Kimberly ohhh heat pack!! I didn’t even think about that. There’s one part on the right side that’s looking a little swollen so I might pop the heat pack there and see what happens. Thank you thank you!! :)
@Jessica that makes sense! I might do the face washer or a hot shower and see if it gives me any luck, thank you!
My midwife told me the average amount that women arrive at the hospital with is 5mls total - so you are already smashing it! 😊
Warm heat pack and then I use a massage ball before trying each session. Apparently 1-2ml per side per day in prep is more than enough. So yay to your left side!
Maybe try putting a warm face washer on your right boob as you may have a blockage. It happened to me and I did that and managed to get a good flow of colostrum. See if that helps. If not, you could always ask your midwife for some advice.
Omg that’s awesome!, 6mls I’m just one pump!! Yay! I had a hot bath n the right one gave me it’s first 1ml tonight as a result so I’m stoked. Have you had any issue with pumping instead of expressing?? I had some cramps tonight after pumping and stopped because I was scared I was going to send myself into labour hahah
