How long have you been pumping? Since my milk came in to top up but EPing since about 8 weeks due to baby needing thickened feeds due to severe reflux.

Your Name: Amie

Baby's Name and Age: Wesley - 12&1/2 months

How long have you been pumping? since Wesley was 3 months old

How long do you plan to pump? still going at 2 pumps per day, hoping to retire soon!

Do you have a "secret" or "trick" that has made pumping easier that you would like to share? Definitely my hands free bra!!

What kind of pump do you use? Pluses and minuses? Medela Symphony. LOVE this pump! I only pumped for 1 hour each day and maintained a 25+ ounce supply until 12 months pp! Now at 2 15-20 minute pumps per day I am at around 18-20 oz. The only minus I can think of for this pump is its size. Other than that, it's amazing!!!
