Re: should I get a new pump?
Have you told your husband how much formula costs? Surely the cost savings from that would be worth getting a new pump.
I'm on the fence about using a used pump. I know someone who did get milk backed up into their pump by accident. It's not a likely scenario but it does happen. I think someone on here posted before that if you would feel comfortable with the other person nursing your baby, then go ahead and use their pump.
I don't feel that strongly about it, but I agree with Cyndie about thoroughly checking it out.
P.S. Your real name is showing. Mine was a minute ago. Go into UserCP and switch it over to your alias.
