Medela pump in style advanced. It's my sister's that she used when EP for my niece that had a cleft palate so the motor has some wear. I need to contact the company my ins uses and get a new one. I have the script from my Dr I just need to get it. Maybe a new one would be more efficient.

On a good note, I'm producing 8-12 oz each time and I'm only pumping 4x/day. I had to buy bigger bottles. I overflowed a Medela bottle early this morning. Lol

They only have a "life" of about a year of full time use. If she used it a lot before you, it might not be as efficient. That being said, it's not uncommon to nurse for that long, and that could just be what's normal for your body. Can you rent a hospital one for a couple of days to see if it will make a difference?

I could look into it I suppose. I don't know where I could do that around here though.
