Re: pumping question..

I have a Lansinoh double electric pump and I found that it hurt much less than the Medela did. The cups are softer and have a slightly larger attachment tube, which pinched less during pumping. It did hurt for me in the beginning.

Each time I pumped, I would start it low and when it stopped being uncomfortable I'd up it a notch or two. Eventually, I got to the point that I could pump 8 oz from each side at a time (major success!!!). I suggest that you try it for a week or so with a tube of lanolin close by (use liberally!) and if you don't feel better about it, discuss it with DH and let him down slowly.

Sorry, mama. Good luck!
