    Default Not sure if I should use frozen pumped BM

    After reading some threads on used pump I decided to buy new one. I have stopped giving my DD BM that I expressed using the old one. I still have some in the freezer.

    I am tempted to use it sometimes when my output is less. But I am not comfortable using it. Should I just throw it away?

    Do what you feel best, but I could never throw away BM. It's liquid gold. Why would you think there's something wrong with it?

    Well I feel the same way. But I borrowed the pump from a family member and very recently found out that others has used it as well not just her. I was upset that I was not aware of it before.

    I feel guilty to throw it away but I think I would worry more if I used it.

    I agree, do what you think is best. But as long as you sterilized the parts before using them, I don't really see the problem.

    What pump did you have? I'd consider mine completely transferrable with new bottles and valves since the milk doesn't go through the tubing...

    Just a thought...

    And, sometimes we share bm...

    I wouldn't toss it unless you think it has gone bad somehow. As long as you cleaned the parts before using it, it should be fine.
