Buying a used pump.

So I am purchasing a used pump. I've not done this before, so I have a question.

It's a Medela pump in style. What parts should I sanitize? Or should I just purchase all new parts? Also, what is the best way to sanitize them?

Re: Buying a used pump.

I would get new parts of I were you.

You can buy them as a kit from Target or Walmart or right from the Medela website.

If you choose to sanitize, do everything. You need to put it all in hot soapy water and let it sit for at least a half hour. Scrub any visible milk stains off and rinse really well. You can hang the tubes up to dry and then hook them up to the pump and blow the air through them.

Alrighty, I will do that! Tubing and valves, etc. are only $30ish. So I will go ahead and do that then! Thank you!
