Re: Used pump ?
From what my LC explained, the Ameda is a closed system - you wouldn't even need new tubing because it never comes in contact with the milk. The Medela is not closed, and while the milk is not supposed to enter the tubing, it is possible so you should always replace the tubing.
Both are still considered single user products so it is not "recommended" by the manufacturer to buy used... but most moms do it anyways! As long as it is CLEAN and well kept I wouldn't have a problem with buying used.
