I've been BF'ing my 9 month old and in the last month or so have seen a sharp decrease in my pumping output. I have enough for her at the breast, but in the last week, the decrease in pumping output has been pretty severe. I'm no where near pumping enough for her for daycare. I went from pumping 10-12 oz a day to 6 oz a day. Up until a month ago I was getting this 10-12 oz in 5 pumping sessions. Then I had to increase my pumping sessions to 7 times a day to get 10-12 oz. It's still taking me 7 pumping sessions to get 6 oz.
I rented a Medela Symphony yesterday and was curious if it might take some time to see an increase in output. I've used the Symphony twice and have seen no increase and maybe even a slight decrease. It appears to be working fine.
Prior to the Symphony, I had been using a PISA and was getting decent output.
Any advice, experiences and tips would be grately appreciated! Thanks!
