    Default Medela freestyle suction..anyone else have problems???

    I have the medela freestyle. I constantly have to take the membranes (silicon soft part ) off and put it back on to get the perfect fit otherwise I have terrible suction. The suction is so bad I can turn my pump all the way up and it just like vibrates my nipples. Does anyone else have this issue??

    I have to make sure the membranes are perfectly dry and for some reason they easily get milk in them.

    If you are having trouble with a pump and have time, please contact the manufacturer. Medela had to recall a faulty pump lot a few years ago because they malfunctioned. It was not obvious, moms just thought they could not pump enough. It took time and multiple reports of problems to get the recall. Thank goodness they did the right thing and did the recall. Unfortunately we will never know how many moms gave up breastfeeding or lost their milk production using these faulty pumps.
