Re: Pump Failure Scare!

Seems this didn't post correctly the first hear goes again!

I had a scare today during my morning pumping session at work. The pump would not turn on! Of course my first thought was "Oh no my pump is broken!" Fortunately, I had a battery back-up and it worked. The AC adapter has stopped working. Buying a $25 AC adapter is much cheaper than buying a new pump! My Medela has served me well through 15 months with my first child and now four months with my son, and I'm hoping it will last at least until this child is weaned. Just wanted to share with everyone in case you have a problem with your pump not turning on...check the AC adapter!

Re: Pump Failure Scare!

Wow - $25?! That is a lot! DH had an extra adapter from maybe a DVD player that I used at home, so I could leave mine plugged in at work to make sure I was never without one. SO GLAD you had a battery back-up! What a scary situation! I probably would've only produced 1/2 the milk I usually did after a scare like that!

Mine quit for a bit once and DS hardly ever needed a bottle so I didn't rush to replace. But then one day I turned it on and it worked fine. Kinda made me mad!
