Re: Urgent Pumping Question! HELP!!

I didn't read the op so this may be repetitive. some women can't get milk by pumping. i don't know why but I do know it happens. Before my twins latched on, I was pumping full time (45 minutes every 2-3 hours most of the time) and I didn't get enough milk for them so I had to supplement but as soon as they started latching on, I made enough milk for them right away. I only had to supplement a couple ounces once a day for a week or so. Before they latched, they were getting at least 8-10 ounces a day from supplements. Some women's bodies do better with pumping than others. Don't worry, you aren't broken!!
