no the whole point of it is you put in your milk and or formula and he just sucks it in on your breast so he will be full

I was talking about right now lol I don't have one of those, the only thing even remotely like that I have is the thing they gave us when we basically had to do that when he was born and we used a syringe...but I think I threw that away in the move and a syringe full of formula won't work anymore...

some WIC places loan hospital grade pumps to moms who are ebf! I cant imagine ever hand pumping! that must be hard! have you gotten to talk to an lactation consultant, WIC also has them. they can be a great resource for info and support. also they can help you find out if its just you not making enough milk or something else.

I talk to the WIC lactation consultant...but she always tells me that I just need to pump more...even though I've told her when I pump 1. I end up dumping it out usually because for some reason he refuses to drink milk out of the bottle. and 2. it ends up making my supply go down instead of up.
Yeah, I hate my handpump...it's not even the ones where you just squeeze the handle, it's part of the electric one they had me use at the hospital, that I have to pull on a tube kind of thing, so I can't even think about attempting to pump one handed. UGH
