    Have you tried looking at a photo and thinking about your baby while pumping? I also had a really hard time getting much out until I tried doing those things. And of course the more frustrated you get, the harder it is. I needed a quiet room where I could concentrate. You have to be in the right state of mind for your body to respond and let down. Try to get yourself in a gushy, nurturing mother mood and your body should cooperate. It takes practice and eventually you shouldn't need to do that all the time, but it definitely helps. Good luck!
