I've been having problems getting good let downs lately, which I suspect is what's causing all the clogs I've been experiencing.

Considering you are already doing my top recommendations, I can only think of one more thing that may help.

I don't know if this is an "out there" suggestion, but back when I was like a week post partum, I noticed one of my breasts was all red. When I called a LC, they told me to massage, take a hot shower, and eat chocolate before/while pumping! I don't know if it has to be chocolate, just something sweet that makes you feel like you are in one of those dove chocolate commericials, lol. The lady I talked to said it can help release those "happy" hormones which can help you relax. Anyways, just thought I would mention it. Desperate times call for desperate measures!

Hmm, that sounds really difficult but if it's what's best for my baby, then I guess I'll just have to eat some chocolate!

Love the chocolate idea! What a great way to explain to my husband why I must satisfy my sweet tooth :)
