I've been using a hand-me-down Medela PIS. Well, I've been struggling with pumping what LG takes a day. My freezer stash started dwindling. My goal is to give EBM the first year. In an effort to stick with that goal I've been doing it all, oatmeal, water, fenugreek....and then I got a new pump. Lansinoh Double Electric.
I got it yesterday and didn't have much luck. But I know you have to get used to pumps, so I tried not to get too down.
Today I pumped 19.5 oz!!!!! I had to play with the settings to get it just right. Yay! I did add a session in the a.m. right after I get up. So, I pump 5 times a day - yuck. BUT, if I can do that and not pump over the weeked, I will.
My last 2 sessions of the day usually result in like 3 oz. tops. Today, 7 oz.!
Although I had to get used to the loudness of the pump, I love just pulling it out and sticking it on my boobs. No tubes to connect, stuff to unscrew, etc. It just sits in my drawer ready to go.
