We've spent weeks researching and testing breast pumps and bottles in real homes with real families. Read our baby feeding bottle and breast pump reviews to find out which ones were awarded Mumsnet Best.

What do you do while you express?

I sit here & read 'Breast and bottle feeding' threads and have some huge letdowns. Hmmm. Not even dd's photos are this effective.

LOL! I've mumsnetted whilst expressing too

I couldn't. The one time I tried to talk on the phone whilst expressing the letdown didn't happen. I had to concentrate to get the let down.

I read "Bella magazine". Don't think it does anything for letdown but keeps me amused.

I never expressed very often (too lazy), but I used to be impressed by the volume of milk that squirted out. I couldn't believe that was how much DS would scoff in a single feed then demand the same a few hours later

I used to surf the net, read a book or wat tv - any was more effective than worrying about how much I was getting, and photos of recipients of all my efforts invariably stopped all let-downs ! Maybe I am just not a natural mother

I had a bath - the heat made it pump out!

I never had time to do anything while I was expressing; I could manage to get 10 - 12 ounces in three or four minutes so it wasn't worth trying to do anything else!
