Re: Gave up... but trying again! Please
Great advice from sch.mommy, as always. I am familiar with the Ameda Purely-Yours and it is not the pump you need. It's a lightweight pump for a mom with an established supply who responds well to pumping and needs to pump maybe a couple of times a day. It is not a good pump for a mom who wants to relactate or increase supply. I strongly, strongly suggest seeing a lactation consultant, preferably an IBCLC, and getting yourself a hospital-grade rental pump. If the rental is not an option, I suggest investing in a much better pump- the Medela Pump in Style would be my choice if I couldn't get my hands on the hospital rental. The LC can also help you get your baby to the breast if he is not currently nursing. If he's not nursing, this link has tips which may help you get him to the breast: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/concerns/...to-breast.html
