    Default Re-using lansinoh pump for second child

    I'm just not sure if I can rely on my pump for my second son due this October. Anybody have experience with the lansinoh double electric? Should I get some new parts or replace the whole thing? It got somewhat regular use but I was not a full time pumper. It will be about 2 years old. Any advice would be helpful, thanks.

    I reused mine, even though it got hard use for about 6 months, and it works fine, but the recommendation is to replace the pump part after about a year of regular use; the professional grade pumps are made for regular use for about a year.

    What you may find is that after having a second child, you may need larger horns. So be sized for that, even if you choose to not replace the pump.
