Hi Ladies. I have a 5 week old son and I went back to work on Monday. I brought my PIS and pumped twice while I was there (every 3 hours). I work in a restaurant so I'm not there for very long. I nurse on demand during the day. At work, I was able to get about 3 oz. from each of these sessions for the first three days. On day 4 I pumped three hours after nursing and only got about 2 oz. Yesterday morning I pumped after the first feed and got about 3 oz. Today, I pumped again in the morning and barely got 1.5 oz. I'm not worried about supply because I can manually express more milk. So I think I'm having issues with the pump.
I don't know if I'm just having trouble relaxing (which I don't think is the problem because, again, if I turn the pump off, I can express milk) or if I have the wrong size breastshields, or there's a suction problem.
Any advice would be really helpful!
