Hope this is the right forum to post in...
My question is, are there any moms out there who have used both
the Medela Symphony 2.0 breast pump and the Playtex Petite Double Electric Breast Pump? And who could tell me which one, generally, they prefer and think is the better/more effective pump?
Back story on why I'm asking: I currently have, on loan from the hospital, a Medela Symphony 2.0 pump. (Needed because I had a baby in the NICU, which is a long story you can find elsewhere on these forums.
) ANYHOW....so I have that one.
Well, the hospital also applied for my insurance to get me a pump and that FINALLY went through, so I just got in the mail a Playtex Petite Double Electric Breast Pump.
I'm mostly breastfeeding my LO and supplementing with formula, which we're slowly trying to wean her from while we increase my own milk supply. This entails pumping, so I'm still pumping a few times a day. I should also mention that I have issues with low milk supply and even when I'm pumping round the clock the most I've ever gotten from the medela pump is 1 oz. per pumping, on a good day.
So anyhow, long story short, I have at my disposal these two pumps and I was wondering which one is the better one. If it's the Medela, then I'd rather not take the time (time I barely have) to open and assemble and have to learn the ins and outs of the Playtex system at this time. My life is pretty crazy right now so I'm big on easy. TIA for any replies!
