Hi and welcome to the boards!

Are you pumping for the sole purpose of having more milk to offer your baby or are you doing this because you're heading back to work?

We have a couple of boards that might be able to offer you a little more help than this one can.

Thank you =]

I'm pumping mainly because my baby wont take the breast. When he does, it's usually in the middle of the night for 5 min =[

How old is he? Maybe he doesn't quite have the knack for it yet? I hope one of our members on those other boards can help!
