    Hi, thinking of buying a used pump like Medela's FS/PISA. Read that there might be risk of contamination even with new spare parts. Any mummies can advise?

    unless its a really old pump. You have to serilise it even the new parts before using.

    Hi,



    I have used a second hand ameda pump for my baby. I did not buy new spare parts, because the parts look quite well maintenance when I brought it. However, I used my own bottle, and sterilize all the accessories after each pump.



    I think you have to assess the conditions of the spare parts before use. If you are really scare, just change all the accessories that may have contact to your breastmilk. It will still be cheaper to pay for the motor, than to buy a brand new set.



    However, you should consider to buy one that still have at least 2-3 months warantee from the time you start to use. This is just to play safe in case the motor not working and you still can have free servicing. My Amenda pump really out of order at the last month of warantee, luckily I still get FOC servicing before the warantee over.



    Hope my experience helps. : )

    Hi mummies, it is not advisable to get a used breastpump as you might have a risk of getting virus infection.



    Every mummies have different body condition and carries different virus. Some virus are not able to be killed by steriliser or boiling water. If you get a used breastpump, the virus might just pass down to you and ur baby.



    My advice: to get a new breastpump for yourself only. If you wanted to get a used breatpump, please change the bottle/funnels/ parts contacts with milk.

    Hi Mummy,



    Letting go of my Medela Freestyle Dual - Used less than 2 months.(Export Set)

    Letting off at $300 with Cooler Bag, Ice Pack, Black Tote Bag, etc. It's a dual pump but I have used 1 side only, another side is totally unused so probably only need to get a new tubing and can use as single.



    And also the following to clear:

    - Disposable Breast Pad - SEALED

    - Medela nipple cream - SEALED

    - Mitten - NEW

    - Similac Glass bottle from Hospital

    - NeuroGain (DHA Supplement for pregnant and lactating Women) SEALED - Expire Oct 2012

    - New Obimin(Vitamins and Mineral Sipplements for pregnant and lactating women. SEALED - Expire 14/12/11

    - Fenugreek Herbal Supplement from GNC - OPENED Bal 50-60capsules

    - Hankies - NEW

    - Brand Chicken Essence - Expire Aug 2012



    I am considering to give away some of the above for those that get the Breast Pump from me.

    Alternatively exchange with Huggies Wet Wipes or Drypers S/M size.
