While pumping on the left I noticed only milk comes out at the base of my nipple and nowhere else. What could be the reasoning for that?

That's a good question! I'm not sure about that...

maybe you just are not responding as well to the pump, and maybe the horn is not the right size?

Yes, it sounds like the flange size is too small or too big, or the suction of the pump is not quite where it should be.

Im using the one that came with it...the 24mm. I tried the 27mm and I felt NO SUCTION at all even with my pump turned all the way.

Medela has 5 different sizes. Even if you use a flange that is too big or too small, the suction should still be the same so that raises a red flag that the suction on the pump isn't working as it should.

Can your LC check it for you?

That sorta happens with my left side, too I swear it's something to do with my nipple. My right side pumps fine. My left side is a pump disaster. It's like it just doesn't respond to the pump, but then, my daughter hasn't liked eating from that side either yet.
