Please help me or offer an opinion . I pump three to four times at work and typically get 4 ounces a session. I only pump 5 days a week. I pumped on Monday and only got 2 ounces at a time which was a shock. I thought my pump was going. I called medela and they thought the motor sounded off so they replaced the pump. I got the pump today and I'm still not getting a good output. Once I start pumping with the second expression, the motor sounds off but when I remove the breastshield etc and let the pump motor go on its own it sounds fine. I called medela customer and they said that maybe I need a different shield. I was using 24 MM and the a 27MM still nothing. They are sending me a new pump and 21MM. I have fairly large breasts and an average size nipple size, could it be the breastshield???? They said that your nipples change overtime from pumping, I dont know how true this is but that is what the rep at medela said. I'm at a loss and cant risk my supply tanking. Its def not the membranes, tubing or valves. It sounds like it could be the flange since im not getting as much milk. I def dont have supply problem what Ican tell, LO is eating and having normal wet and poopy diapers.
