Thread: Pump still good?

  1. #1

    Default Pump still good?

    I bought a Medela Pump in Style in 2006 when my daughter was born. I pumped a lot with her but only for about three months. I used the pump for a little over a year with my son with whom I pretty much exclusively pumped. He did nurse but wasn't very effective at it due to some health issues so I always pumped after. We never supplemented him with formula so there was A LOT of pumping.

    I'm expecting a new LO in December. Do you think I should buy a new pump or is my old one still good? I'd hate to waste money on a new one if the old one is still good but I'd also hate to have supply issues because of a worn out pump. I work full time.

    I have a PISA that I used for 14 months. I was thinking of getting a new one because of reasons you stated - also towards the end it seemed like the motor didn't have as much power I'll probably try it for building up my stash for when I go back to work and see how it is but I really think I will need a new one. I don'tknow if that helps

    I'd buy a new one, honestly. They aren't really meant for EPing like you did with your last LO. They wear out faster in that situation.
