    Hi,

    Re: Pump selection

    I'm sorry the Symphony isn't working good for you. I use the symphony and get about 30% more then the PIS. I like it because it seems so much more comfortable on full power and more efficient.

    Re: bottles for breastfed babies

    Have you considered renting a Symphony? I let down so much faster with a Symphony since it is so much more comfortable for me than the PIS.
