Re: Breastpump Question

2 things medella does NOT rec sharing pumps. the way the pump is designed, if milk overflows into the tubes, you can get milk in the diaphram. it nearly happened to me- milk got sucked itnot the tubes and got 3/4 of the way into the tube before I could yank them out. the concerns here are 2fold, mold and disease.

also the pumps only have so much 'life' to them so you should ask how much it was used. if it was used by a mom who used it 2-3x a day for a few months, its a good deal. if it was used by a mom who EP (usually 8-10x a day) or for multiple kids, its not.

its prob a good deal and fine but see if you can find out more details....
