    You gonna laught but it depends on a size of your boobs:winkwink: If you have a neat pair that a double would be worth if, if like me you have huge H-Js, and when expressing each boob needs to be supported by one hand, there is no point to a double. (what happened to me was that with one hand I had to hold my boob and with the other the pump bit.)

    He is a lucky boy.... But then again he doesn't have to carry them around:dohh: If anybody wants some Id gladly share!:winkwink:

    Well, I was able to express from 2 boobs about 6 days after my LO was born. I think in one go I managed to do about 60-90mls (around 4oz I think).
    I didn't do it very often in the beginning... And just twice a day.

    After a while (approx 2 weeks) the supply goes up and some girls can express several times a day anywhere from 5 to 8 oz in one go from both boobs.

    Aww, and forgot to say - expressing is a right pain :dohh: (well, was for me anyways).

    Breastfeeding much easier...

    I am planning on solely expressing and so have bought a double electric breast pump. I'm a little worried now as I have "big boobies". I can't breast feed as I don't like the sensation (I did try with my first, as the midwife bullied me :-() I only lasted one day though and my other 2 were straight on the bottle!!
