Borrowing breast pumps

Since breast pumps can be a pretty expensive item on the baby registry, many women wonder whether or not they can just borrow a breast pump from a friend or buy a used breast pump online. The answer we tell most women is it is not a good idea to borrow a used personal grade breast pump.

Why a used pump is dangerous

Many breast pumps have “open systems” in which the motor can become contaminated with the mother’s milk which also means the potential for bacteria and viruses to get into the tubing making your baby sick. Aside from the obvious hygienic issues around using a used breast pump, there is also a chance that the pump breaks. It is important to keep in mind that while these breast pump brands have manufacturer warranties on them, they will not apply once another mother has used the pump.
