    Re: STILL having problems with pumping (long)

    Life seems to be on the mend.
    The 30mm are doing the trick for now. I may go to the 27 mm after I heal as I think I'm not getting as much milk. I use olive oil to lubricate -- it seems to do a...

    Re: STILL having problems with pumping (long)

    Thanks for the help! I'm going to try the olive oil. It can't hurt at this point!

    STILL having problems with pumping (long)

    I'm ready to just scream as nothing seems to be working.
    I exclusively pumped for 6 months with my first LO. No problems. I had enough milk to feed twins.
    I exclusively breastfed my second LO...

    Re: Avent made me ANGRY

    The BRU was very helpful. The manager let me exchange it for a Medela and they had the large breastshields in stock. That will get me through today and I've ordered the X-large shields from...

    Re: Bleeding nipples

    I tried it without the inserts and it didn't help.
    Fortunately I live near a "super" babies r us and they helped me out. I called and talked to the manager. She was very sympathetic when I...

    Avent made me ANGRY

    OK -- my Medela gave out. It wasn't getting any suction. So I figured I'd try the Avent duo because I like the idea of the soft inserts.
    The edge of the soft inserts caused severe nipple soreness....

    Re: Recommended sites for ordering Medala pumps?

    You can now order from Medela.com.
    However, the backpack one is listed as discontinued, so the only way I think you'll be able to get it is at a retailer or used.
    Good luck.

    Bleeding nipples

    I bought the Avent Isis Duo after my Medela conked out. I loved it. Then my nipples started to get sore, but I chalked that up to the fact that my LO pulled away to look around without unlatching....

    Re: Help! New Mom with Lopsided Breasts

    I have the same problem. I'm lopsided and the larger one produces at least 1-2 ounces more per feeding. I get the joys of two kinds of problems -- overupply and forceful letdown in one breast and...

    Re: Question re pumping

    Just wanted to say that it was the pump! I went out and bought an ISIS DUO and I can already feel the difference. I want to cry with relief. My supply is still low, but I know its just a matter of...

    Re: Anybody used Avent Isis IQ and PIS?

    I've used both and its a question of what is most important to you.
    The PIS is WAY more convenient for traveling (I have the one in a backpack). It seems more compact, plus there is a battery pack...

    Re: pumping

    I found it best to pump after the final feeding of the night. I would pump until the breast was completely empty and I knew I had a longer stretch to build up afterwards as DD tended to go longer...

    Question re pumping

    My DS (now 21 months) had trouble latching, so I exclusively pumped. I was able to pump enough to feed him and put away a solid 2 month supply for post-weaning. Most pumping sessions, I got AT...
