Have disc bulge and pich nerve. Chiro recommended a lumbar "posture pump" for traction. Is it safe/does it really work?
Don't know for sure: Because there have not been any well documented clinical trials, it's difficult to say if it works or if it's safe. I see these on sale at amazon for $90. Unfortunately the manufacturer's website relies mostly on "testimonials" to sell their product, which is as unscientific as you can get. It may work, it's just that no one has bothered to do a study (on the lumbar version anyways). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When you can: It depends on why you are pumping. If you are engorged, pump until your breast is compressible before the start of the feeding. If you exclusively pump, try to pump 8-12 times a day.

You don't ever have to pump- since the best "pump" is the baby, but if you have a reason to, pump whenever you can. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It can be tiring and tedious to pump so often but milk stored in a stand free freezer can be used for 6 months afterwards. Drinking an herbal tea with fenugreek also increases milk production. There is a tea called mother milk. ...Read more
Good for some: Just like most other aspects of diabetes management there is no "right" answer to whether a pump is good for you. If you need additional flexibility in your Insulin dosing and don't mind being tethered to a device 24 hours a day and your insurance will pay for it then a pump may be a good option. If you are well-controlled on Insulin injections it may not be necessary. Ask your doctors. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Do lots at home: If you can feed your baby as you drop off at daycare and as you pick up-that's 2 "pumping" sessions done. Plus, you get to know your day care provider a little better and don't have a crying little one as you go home. Use your free (non-work) time to get the baby to breast, because the baby is the best pump. Weekends are great for that. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
