    That one won't get mold in it. I use the Lansinoh version of that pump (it's purple, not white). And yes, it's been good. That is one I would give to someone else.

    I have also used a hand me down, and it wore out in 6 months.

    What I learned: The "nine month pumping slump" or "nine month pumping wall" is bad enough when you have a great pump! No need to make it even worse with a pump that just doesn't have suction like it used to!
