TRIED AND TRUE TIPS FROM YOUR FELLOW SYBERMOMS

*Eat oatmeal. Many mothers find it helps with supply.

*Make a pumping schedule.

*Do something else while pumping to take your mind off the task at hand.

*Nurse on demand when you're with your baby.

*Make pumping a top priority. Put it on your calendar just like any meeting.

*Don't let anything interfere with your pumping. If someone asks you to do something or come to a meeting during your scheduled pumping time, tell them they have to wait.

*If you are storing milk in bottles, make sure you have plenty on hand.

*Pack a towel of some sort into your cooler bag. You can lay it across your lap to catch drips as you're pumping.

*Know your rights in the workplace. If other employees are allowed to take smoke breaks, then you are entitled time to pump for your baby.

*Try adjusting/readjusting the suction on your pump. Some mothers get more milk with a lower suction, others find they get more if they pump on a high setting. Find what works for you!

*PIS users: Keep an extra set of the little white membranes on hand. The pump won't work properly without them.

*Consider leaving your pump at work and just carrying your cooler bag and anything that needs washed home at night.

*Post-It correction tape works as a great label for breastmilk bottles.

*If you continue to pump longer than 10 minutes, you might get a second let down.

*Practice makes perfect.

*If possible, find a co-worker who will support you and cover you during your pumping times(if needed).

*Relax and remember pumping is a learned art.

*Remember that baby is more efficient than the pump.

*If you see a decrease in pumping output, fenugreek or other galactagogues(milk increasers) might be helpful.
