Re: Pumping - Is there some kind of trick to it?

I lean forward a bit too, as mentioned by a PP.

In addition to that, I find that if I sort of massage my breast I can get more.

Also, I try to pump early in the morning since she's sttn now and I wake up soaked. If I wake up to pee, I try to just pump a little on both sides. Or, if I wake up before her in the morning, I pump a few minutes on both sides to get rid of the engorgement. I get most then - about 5 ounces, and I could get more, but I don't really take that much - it's just so that I won't leak through the nursing pads and onto my shirt.
