Does anyone use this pump? I have been pumping like crazy since ds was born last Saturday. I used the Medela Symphony until leaving the hospital yesterday afternoon. I used the Ameda Ultra Purely Yours here at the house. I have been barely getting 5 Mls per session.

I have a manual Avent Isis that I used to use occasionally. I got that back out out of desperation. I have had better luck with that and actually got 20 Mls with it. I think it is the silicon petals. I don't think I let down with the other 2 pumps for some reason. I am seriously considering getting the electric double Isis. I can also get Medela free from the NICU for use while he is there. But, how does that compare to the Symphony? The most I ever got out of the Symphony at a session was 8 Mls. Should I try the Lactina or just go with the Isis?

Re: Avent Isis IQ Duo electric......

Why not use the petls from the Avent with with Medela pump? No professional grade pump will compare really to a hospital grade IMO. A hospital grade is meant for 24/7 pumping. For EPing I recommend a hospital grade, and i've EPed with both. If you won't be EPing or only a few times per day then the Double Electrics should be fine. If the Isis works for you then stick with what works, but I know I've heard of mamas using the petals in the medela flanges.

The Isis is the ONLY pump I have tried that works for me.

It would be interesting to see if the silicon petals in a different pump would work for you.
