The Baby's boiler is especially susceptible to scale--as is the Color's boiler as well. My recording engineer has the Color, and experienced the same problem. Not sure if descaling did the trick for him, though.

Had to replace a cracked boiler on a baby recently, I thought I descaled enough but I was really surprised at the amount of scale in the old boiler. The Gaggia users group is a great resource as well. FWIW baby and baby twin are 2 different animals the baby  is a single boiler and the twin has a thermoblock.
