    Mine does that sometimes... I just let the pump shield stay on there for a few minutes with nothing... It should stimulate let down.. Read my thread a few rows down...

    Have you tried hand expressing breast milk? I found my manual pump was a nightmare but could get a good supply of milk through hand expressing.

    I can sometimes have my electric pump on for 15 minutes before anything comes out so keep trying

    its still sending a signal to your body that you need to produce more milk whether milk is coming out or not :)
