I am currently using a Medela Double Select and am pumping about 6 times a day. I am a full time working mum and my son is 3 months old. I wish to breast feed him for as long as possible and am working towards exclusivley breastfeeding. (am currently supplementing with formula once a day) Besides all the accesories that comes with the PIS, is these a huge difference between the motor for the Double Select and the PIS? (I have already set up my own bag plus cooler bag that I take to and fro work for pumping) I am considering upgrading to a PIS Original or Advance or renting the Symphony if necessary.
My second question is : Sometimes my nipples feels sore because I find the suction is pulling my nipples. I have heard that the Avent IQ Duo has a more gentler suction pump that doesn't heart the nipple so much. Is that true?
Am really glad that I found this site and all the mothers alike that are breastfeeding. Thanks!
