Re: What to check when I get my old pump out of storage?

I don't have a PIS, but I did store my pump for about three years before DD was born. First try out your pump with all the parts you currently have just to make sure it still works. If it works, then I would suggest replacing connectors, tubing, diaphragms/valves, and the collection containers.

If you will be using a lactation consultant, or if your hospital offers lactation services, you may be able to get replacement parts available for free or reduced cost. I wish I had checked ahead of time. I spent $50 on a new Ameda Hygienikit only to have my l.c. give me a new one for free.
