I just wrote on the main forum but my breastfeeding problem.
I am drying up or dried up and know that their is a special pump to encourage the stimuation. i have the advanced medla but i was told that the medla is good when you already have the supply.
Has anyone used this pump. i can't remember the name. i do know it starts with a "S".
I would need to ask DH.
HAs anyone dried up and gained the milk suppy back? I was told that you can do it.

Sorry, Marie, that this reply comes very late, but I hope it can help you or someone else in the same situation.
The Medela pump that you may be thinking of is the Symphony, which is a hospital grade pump which can be rented or purchased. You can go to the medela.com website to find a rental station in your area. You are right in thinking that a hospital grade pump is your best bet for relactating.
You will probably want to use something like the SNS lactation aid that Medela or other companies makes, unless your plan is to pump exclusively.
For really difficult breastfeeding problems it is a good idea to see a lactation consultant (IBCLC), but you probably already know that.
