Thread: Pump Problem?

  1. #1

    Default Pump Problem?

    I have suddenly dropped in supply and it does not seem my Medela PIS Advanced is working as well as when I bought it. Has anyone else had this problem, or am I just used to it now? I can still get letdown , but can't pump much out no matter what time of day and I was always able to get 5-8oz now can barely get 1-2oz. I have heard your body can quit being fooled by a pump any advice?

    Have you replaced the parts that are wearable lately? Like the membranes?
    That can have a big effect. Also did you buy your pump new? If not most single user pumps have a "life" to the motor. You can also contact Medela if you suspect it's a motor problem and it's still under a year old.

    Breastfeeding is an instinctual and natural act, but it is also an art that is learned day by day.

    Call Medela. They are pretty helpful with troubleshooting. I've had to get mine replaced before, they do wear out. They were very helpful and prompt in getting a new one sent out to me.
