Good for you... if you want to be inducing buddies, PM me. I'm just finally getting started HARDCORE . My baby is here and has been here 9 mos, but we were foster and couldn't get approval to BF. So here we are at 9 mos and I'm going all out!

I have my first appt with my Lactation Consultant on Monday!!
I didn't know that. I'm SOOOOOOOO excited for you!

I agree with the others- you can try larger horns. I always put some lanolin on my nipples/areola before I pump- increases suction power, and decreases chance of chafing!

If you don't want to wash after every pumping session, I agree with the previous poster about storing bottles/horns in the fridge, and washing once a day. Even though you're not producing, you're making some steam- and that invites things to grow!
