@Cbeanz I've just been shoving the whole thing through the hole on my hands free bra. I have the lanisoh bra. I agree that I like the spectra so far and I love that it works with the avent bottles, but yeah getting the medela parts into the bra is way easier.
My boob hurts no lumps or redness just soreness when I touch it on one side. It feels better when LO is nursing. Is this a sign of a plugged duct? I have been massaging it and I'm going to put a heating pad on it before I go to bed. LO started sleeping longer at night so wondering if the duct is plugged as I haven't been nursing as much the last 2 nights
