I just started back to work last week. I am using the same PISA as I used with DD1. It is taking my over 40 min to pump with minimal results unless I crank it up so high as to tear the skin on my nipples which I have done again. Ouch!
With DD1, it took me about 30 minutes to pump--pumping 3x/day I would get about 22-25 oz. Now I'll pump for 40+ minutes and hardly get anything, esp. out of my left breast. Out of my right side, it will still be flowing, but why is it so slow? I am having better results using the manual Medela Harmony. I can get about 4oz in 20 min, but it's one breast at a time and not hands free.
How can I learn to respond better to my PISA this time around? I had the suction checked and it's fine, new tubing, valves, etc. I also have oversupply so it is just the way I am responding to it. I do better with the slow control on the manual. Help!
