YOU'RE NOT FAILING! Breasts need time to get used to how the pump stimulates your let down. As t the hospital I was given the medela symphony. When I came home I used my hygeia. I barely got anything. I switched to my medela pump n style and resumed my normal output. If I stuck with the hygeia I'm sure I'd do just ad well after a day or two but I didn't want to wait.
Half an ounce after breastfeeding is still good. Remember to pump for 20-25 minutes. They say 15 but that extra 5-10 minutes can make a real difference.
And hey, anyone not happy with their medela, I'll trade you pumps, lol
