Exlusive pumping experience

by Laura

Due to flat nipples and a baby who would latch but refused to then stay on the breast I have EPed since day two.

I have an excellent milk supply getting 6-10 oz from 10 mins pumping. It has given me the chance to feed breastmilk but also be able to leave lo with hubby for the day with more than enough milk for her with little effort.

I find ep to be easy, convenient and allow me freedom. Tbh if I have a second child this would def be my choice of feeding, I hated breastfeeding, I found it tiring and very painful. I have no guilt over ep and think its fab! :)

Totally agree

Totally agree with you there. I too have flat nipples and tried so hard with my first to bf but she wouldn't latch.

My second latched great but it was sooooo painful I was dreading every feed and would sit there crying the whole time, I eventually went to pumping and found great relief.

My third I was determined to give him breastmilk but didn't want to latch on so i turned to exclusive pumping from day one. Best thing I could of done although I never had enough supply so was still giving formula afterwards.

I do think this needs to be an option for mums who say they don't want the bf. This is a great way to still give bub the best.
