I'm hoping you are all doing well.
I need a bit of advice on using 2 single pumps that I had in storage for the past 3 years.
I bought one from ebay new and got one given by my sister in law ,which she has hardly used for a couple of weeks.I used them both with my son for about 7 months and then placed in storage ,clean in an an air tight container.
I'm now close to my due date with my second son and wondering if I should replace any valves or buy any bits new that are likely to be deteriorated whilst been kept unused .
I don't know if it makes sense. I did seek advice from the Medela customer support but they never responded.
So I'm keen to know what your views are and if you advice me to purchase new bits /any specific pieces(like valves for example) that could make a difference using the pumps after all this time.
Many thanks in advance
Hi there, @BiancaBA. Just to let you know, we're moving this thread over to the Infant Feeding board for you as you might get a few more reponses there.
