Finally a 2nd Letdown

I'm SO excited I got a 2nd letdown. Lately I've not pumped more than 3oz total. I tried super hard to relax and to get a 2nd one. It worked with two different pumpings!

 Any tips from mothers who pump at work to get a 2nd let down. I feel so rushed at work to get back in the room (I'm dispatcher). I try not to stay out but 15mins.

    That's great! I have no tips, though. Hope it keeps happening!

    I know this sounds silly, but it usually works for me... I watch a video (on my cell phone) of my son sucking in his sleep. It always helps me to get more while I'm pumping!

    I find that just continuing to pump after I think I'm done results in a 2nd letdown.  I stay preoccupied (thanks, Bump!) while I pump, which helps distract me.  I usually get 6-7 oz.

    I have a few videos of her on my phone, I'll try that. I also will be trying to continue to pump after I *think* I'm done.

    do you switch back to the short quick pumping after your 1st let down? if you have a medela pump, push the let down button again after your first let down.i also look at pics on my cell phone of my daughter and that helps.
