Hi! I am a total newbie trying to get started on milking. The problem is that in the mornings my hands are usually so numb I can't feel to milk by hand so I'm thinking of getting one of those hand pump milkers just for the times I'm numb. My question is whether or not this has to be pumped continuously or once you pump it keeps the suction going for a little bit of time. I'm just wondering if I can pump it enough with numb hands. What experience have others had trying to use a hand pump with carpal tunnel? BTW, I'm so proud of my nubian doe, she let me milk today with no kicking & waited patiently even after she lost interest in her grain, & she's only been milked for about a week. I only managed to get 3 ounces, though, not good. Thanks!
