I was posting in the pumping forum (http://forums.llli.org/showthread.ph...buying-trouble) because I was stressing about my reduced output on the pump at work and not keeping up with my baby but I have a couple of followup questions and I'm realizing that the milk production forum might be more appropriate...
I rented a Symphony hoping that I would be able to pump more efficiently and stimulate my milk supply. I had used a Symphony when my baby was first born and in the NICU and it really helped me to get my milk supply up then. I've been using it for 3 days and I'm starting to see a difference. I'm now keeping up with my baby's bottle consumption while I'm at work. My question is, do I need to keep pumping with the Symphony (I was using a PISA before)? It seems like the obvious answer is yes, but I wondered if anyone here had success pumping with the Symphony or other hospital grade pump to increase their milk supply and found otherwise.
PS My baby is now 4 months old.
