Re: Leaking milk out of pumping breastshields

I know this thread is a little older, but I need to share my trick. I always keep a kitchen towel in my pump and I tuck it underneath my girls while I'm pumping. Like I wad it lengthwise and put it under where an underwire would go. It props them up into the right spot and I don't leak. Then I have a towel to use when I disengage the pump and use it to wipe the flanges so they don't drip.
B... newly type II diabetic, wife to B 9/16/05, mama to B 1/23/07 H 9/27/08 (after three years of GI issues FINALLY getting a celiac diagnosis!) and our miracle baby C who joined us 9/6/2011, and is forever greatful to his "milk mamas" who pump for us! We do lots of crunchy things and some soggy things, too.
