New Pump Not Working as Well

Hi Moms, I was using the Ameda Purely Yours double electric pump for three weeks and was able to get an average of 2-3 ounces from each side everytime I pumped (2-3 times a day)...and then, I just bought the Medela Pump in Style Advanced last week (no returns or refunds too) and I think my milk supply is not the same....it varies greatly...some mornings I can get around 8-9 ounces (both sides combined in about 20 mins) and about 4-5 oz later on in the day and some times I can barely get an ounce and a half...like this morning..it is very...

To Breastfeeding Moms

I have two sons that I chose to use formula with, I'm at peace with that choice. I'm very uncomfortable, however, about doing any breastfeeding in public. No offense, but I think it particularly offensive when ladies choose not to cover up while breastfeeding in public, like at a resaraunt. With that said, I am pregnant with baby number 3 and would like explore the option of pumping only so that my baby has the benefits of breastmilk without having to breastfeed in front of anyone. Walk me through it- how big of a pain would it be to just...

Looking for a Medela Pump in Style & a My Breast Friend Pillow--anyone???

I'm expecting in late October, & plan to breastfeed. I BF for 7 months with my daughter, & rented a pump from the hospital the whole time. For the money we ended up paying, I could've had a really nice pump of my own. So now I'm looking for a nice double electric pump, since I'll be pumping at work, and can't afford to buy one brand-new. I've tried EBay, but just get frustrated with all the bidding. If anyone has a nice pump at home they don't use anymore, I'd love to buy it off you. I think breastfeeding's incredibly important--I'm...

Ameda vs Medela Pump

I bought the Ameda pump and have only been able to pump a maximum of 1.5 oz with it, regardless of when I pump. I'm wondering if the Medela Pump N Style would pump more milk? Has anyone tried both pumps and noticed a difference in output?

My 4 1/2 Mo Old Is Weaning Himself

I have a 4 1/2 mo old boy. Since he was born I did not make enough milk and was told to supplement with formula. I work full time and have a long commute, so I don't get a lot of time with either of my boys during the week. Now today at lunch I just went to breastfeed my baby and he wanted nothing to do with it. My mom says he was too hungry and was being lazy wanting a bottle instead. I'm not ready to stop. There was plenty of milk (I squirted myself in the face LOL) but he was crying very bad. I couldn't stand it I gave him a bottle and...
