Giving pumping a second chance

Pumping hands free with my DIY hands free sports bra for the first time.

Ok, so I had given up pumping about 2 weeks ago because it was really stressing me out. Pumping consistently and always getting 1oz or less, with the exception of morning pumps which I would get about 2oz.
Last night I asked DH to stop in at Walmart and get me a sports bra and he came home with a 2 pack. This morning I cut little holes on the nipple area to get some hands free pumping going. What can I say? Well pumping hands free is much less stressful then joggling the pump with my arm and hands.

I was able to pump almost 2oz (I had comfort nursed Mia about 15 minutes prior) and I usually get 2oz in the am pump. Being hands free allowed me to do compressions and massage for more milk flow.
