Do you respond better with the double pump vs just using one side at a time?

Double.  I use a sports bra and hold my baby while I pump too.

One side at a time, switchpumping--going back and forth between my breasts several times.

Yes-I used a single with my first born and then got a double when I went back to work and was shocked at how much more I could get out. Your let down reflex is more productively used when youre pumping both breasts at the same time.

Double pump worked better for me. I also got more if I pumped one side while I nursed the other.

Double. I bought the bra that holds them on.

Double pump gives me much better output. Plus it's faster for work. :)
