anyone else have trouble w/ Avent Isis pump?
I use the hospital grade electric pump at work and bring my own attachments. So at home I got an Avent Isis hand pump.
Sometimes that thing works great. I've had many times lately where I go to use it and it "tugs" a little at my breast and maybe pulls a couple of drops out, usually causes a let down but I can sit there and try and try to pump and it won't pump my breast efficiently enough to express the milk. Since it has worked sometimes and not others I don't think it's the way I'm using it. I've rechecked and made sure it's assembled correctly. I'm so frustrated and I'm ready to throw the thing in the garbage. I would never recommend this product to anyone! I'm sitting here right now w/breasts that haven't been emptied since I pumped at work 11 hours ago, dd won't nurse, and I have nothing to express w/ unless I choose to drive to work and use the mother's room! I tried to "hand express" and don't recommend it unless you really know what you're doing, they're still throbbing!
