I need some help. I've been using an Ameda PIS (got it used from a friend) the whole time to pump, once a day or so until 3 months, then 3x/day for 4 days/week while I'm at work. I've had good results up until a few weeks ago.
I thought maybe it was starting solds that made my pumping output decrease 2-3 oz/day gradually, but now I'm afraid it was my pump motor slowly going bad. The problem is that it still works, so it's not like it just died and I can attribute everything to that.
I finally came to the realization that it may be the pump. So I've got a Medela PIS now and just used it for the first time today. I got what I've been getting with my Ameda lately, not what I used to get, though the suction did seem a lot better.
My question is this - since my supply has been affected for 2 weeks +, will it take some time with a new pump to get it back up to where it was? Will it ever go back to what it was? I sure hope so. My freezer stash has taken a beating because of this. I'm also taking Fenugreek though I've tried this in the past to no avail.
