    More frequent let-down?

    Hello all,

    Wanna ask, how to have more frequenty let-down when expressing breast milk using electric pump? I only have at most one time let-down when expressing in 15 minutes, sometimes no let-down at all, so milk flow is slower.

    Is there anything we can do to promote more frequent let-down? Thanks!!

    Massage helps after milk slows to trickle after 1st letdown. Some people look at baby photos and videos. For me surfing the internet & reading mags helps. I think most imptly, dont't keep thinking about the pumping and stressing up. I pump at at desk so when I am concentrating on doing something else, it helps.

    I read some tips on stimulating the nipples in another forum:

    can try drinking warm drinks too.

    for me, my bbs will cause the let down.

    Watching TV works for me. I just let the electric pump run for 20-30mins and i check my milk flow during commercials.
