I've read on here to try breast massage while pumping to help loosen up the fat stuck in the milk ducts, but I'm trying to figure out how to actually do this while pumping. I wear a pumping bra and use a double electric pump, so I'm having trouble massaging under the bra without disturbing the contact between the flange and my breast and reducing suction. Are there any tricks to this?
I have a definite stud and dud, and I've noticed that my dud produces significantly more watery milk compared to my stud, regardless of which side DD ate off of last. I usually combine the milk from both sides into one bottle, but was wondering if I should be trying to increase the fat content from the one side. I battled an oversupply and foremilk/hindmilk imbalance early on, so I'm always concerned of DD getting too much foremilk and having it make her sick again. TIA!
