So, my aunt has a breast pump she wants to give/loan me. The problem is, it's about 12 or 13 years old. I don't know a ton about breast pumps. I've read on here about people getting breast pumps from friends and whatever but being able to replace the tubing and other stuff. The problem with this one is since it's so old I doubt I'd be able to get replacement parts (I don't know what brand it is).
When I mentioned to her about how I read that people can get replacement tubing and other things for a used breast pump she said that the milk doesn't go in the tubes and just falls down into a bottle (or something) from the pump or suction things.
I don't doubt that she cleaned it, and I know she doesn't have any diseases, but I'm just not sure about this. Hasn't breast pump technology advanced in the last 10 years? I'm also kind of a germaphobe too, so a pump without new parts kind of squicks me out.
I don't know what to do though. Most, if not almost all of my stuff (especially expensive stuff) that I am going to get from showers and whatever is going to be from my aunts, and they are doing a ton for me already, so I feel bad about turning down her pump and registering for a new one since they're so expensive.
What do you think? What do you think I should do, just use my aunt's pump?
