I also had the Lansinoh pump and the PISA and still had to supplement w/formula. I was a poor pump responder and ended up taking domperidone which greatly increased my supply. Some women just don't respond well to the pump no matter how many tricks we try.
If nothing else works and you think you might want to try galactologues, look into fenugreek, blessed thistle, and domperidone. The first 2 didn't work for me but Dom was a lifesaver.

For a time saver - someone once posted on this site somewhere that she doesn't wash her pumping supplies during the day, just puts them in the fridge, makes sense, milk doesn't go bad in the fridge. Wash when you get home and ready for the next day! I now do this when I go to someone's house and have to pump, I keep everything a heavy duty ziploc bag and just wash the bag well and reuse! HUGE time saver! BTW - I'm an EPer, I will do this if I am sick and just too tired to do anything! Good luck to you!
