Woo hoo!

I got a PISA and lemme tell you, that thing would suck the chrome off a trailer hitch. Click here to enlarge

I've been nursing the hell out of Owen, pumping between feedings, taking fenugreek, eating oatmeal every day, drinking MM tea and I think my supply is coming back. Click here to enlarge I just pumped 5 oz which is totally unheard of for me.

Well, that was once I was working. I'd take a break to pump, and I would usually get 8-10oz, especially at around 6-8 months of age. If I worked an 8 hour shift, I would often come home with 20oz.

I had a great freezer stash as a result.

My friggen PIS broke the other week so I am relying on my Avent hand pump Click here to enlarge

I think my terror of a toddler stepped on it. I had it on the floor next to the couch where I usually pump. It was 6 years old but I really don't feel like buying a new one when this may be my last baby.

I had a PIS with Harrison and a PISA with Maya, I know no other pump. I love them Click here to enlarge Click here to enlarge

It's not a feeling, it's a knowing.

I'll buck the trend, I don't think her kids are all that in the cute department. not all kids are cute. they have other attributes that make up for that, but look at tweedle's aiden, that is a cute kid. and your kids mel, those are adorable kids. Her's are average. I wouldn't take a second look passing her on the street.

I believe the difference is that the PISA has varying pump speeds, in that I mean for the first 2 minutes, it pumps very quickly and with not too much suction. Then it switches over to longer pumps and more suction. It's to imitate the way a baby generally nurses to get let down to happen.

I think that's it Click here to enlarge. I had no problems letting down at all so the varying speed didn't really make much of a difference for me.
