Re: What to do with my 1 mo old while pumping? Losing my mind!

I'm on month 12 of EPing. I tried and tried to get my dd to nurse with no success When she was little I put her in a baby bjorn bouncer facing me. i would bounce her with my foot and sing to her I LOVE that bouncer, even though it was super expensive, it was worth every penny. i love how simple it is, no batteries or buttons, you can bounce it with your foot or let it sway with her movement. the weight limit is like 30 lbs and it folds completley flat.
I have a hands free double pump but it never worked for me to do it hands free or both at the same time. I'm large breasted and found that i needed to be holding and massaging. I've made it work to this day. I'm not only pump my left side 2xday and my right 1xday and i'm able to make enough for her to have abot 13 oz a day.

not sure if you found a solution but i only pumped for my son and ans am doing the same for my daughter i highly reccomend the hands free pumping bra it is amazing or even better the medela freestyle pump which you can clip to your waist and actually move around the house while pumping

i agree with the suggestions to pump one side while your infant is on the other. but if you cant work it out.. come to terms with the crying. you are doing what is best for her.. she needs to eat and you need to put her down to pump out her food. its like this: if she wanted to play with a sharp knife you would not let her. no matter how much she screamed and cried about it.. not happening. because you are doing what is best for her. i know it is a little different, but just be confident in knowing you are doing what is necessary for the well being of your LO. hope this helps!
