I used to put a hot tea towel around my breasts while pumping, that usually help or do it while your relaxed in a hot bath, also making sure your shoulders are relaxed and your not tense helps as well. I hope this helps.

Chances are you won't be able to completely empty your breast with a pump. It just is not as efficient as a baby. I've heard that visualization helps - like thinking about the baby while you pump.

How long have you been b/f for? It took me like 2 months to be really successful at pumping. Also I had an electric gerber pump but it was wearing out so I switched to a manual avent one and like it soo much better.
