Re: Buying a pump

Personally I wouldn't buy a used pump.
I do love my PISA though. I got a good deal - my insurance covered 50%. Check with your insurance.

Re: Buying a pump

I got my pump from my cousin and I still changed out everything that could be taken off and replaced. If you can't afford a new one then a used one is better then nothing. As long as you replace all the tubing and stuff then all you're really using that's used in the motor. But be aware that they are only meant for one user so the suction might not be as amazing as a new one... mine works fine though and I got it from my cousin who I'm sure didn't get it new.

Re: Buying a pump

pumps are much cheaper online than in the stores. Mine was $210 I think? I'll find a few links for you.

Re: Buying a pump

I got mine at Away Baby Essentials... brand new, super fast shipping, great customer service.

http://www.awaybabyessentials.com/

This site had them for a good price too:

There's the typical "if it's too good to be true" line about pricing that you should follow, but as long as the seller is listed as authorized on the Medela website you should be fine.
