Hi, all -

I've been back to work for 1 week part time and 3 days this week full time so far.

May be it is just that it's a new situation for you to pump at work, so you can't relax? It might get easier once you get used to it. In this situation it might help to pump longer to get all the milk out for now. Or may be hand express at the end if it works for you? Or may be it will help to do a little break and then pump a bit more to get another letdown? Just some thoughts...

Those are great suggestions, thanks! I do hope things improve with time. For now, I'm doing the massage and compressions that I always do and adding a couple of minutes - particularly if I notice a late let-down coming on. I might try cycling my pump so that I have a break and then going back to the regular cycle to see if that helps...
