    That's how I was, my milk was "in" for 24hrs and then it went away totally. I barely got that much. I so know how you feel. We weren't able to BF.

    Relaxation is huge, if you are stressed expressing milk can be hard to do.

    Have you tried hand expression? I never had much luck with actual pumps, but hand expression would create a flow that would pretty much gush w/out any further effort needed and I could just let it stream into the bottle.

    I couldn't get more than an ounce with my Playtex pump. Switching to a medela and getting properly fitted helped a TON. The bolded was the most important part.

    I'm randomly creeping this thread lol does the medela allow you to get different sizes? I know I'm going to have to get fitted properly when I use my pump I just know that some pumps don't have different "sizes"

    Try a different pump. Read reviews and blogs on pumps, there are so many tips and tricks and not all pumps are created equal. and
    You can usually rent pumps, too (good hospital grade ones).
