How many kids does a pump last through?

I had a medela pump in style given to me by a close family friend. She used it to pump for one while at work full time, then friend used it while she worked full time. I wasn't able to produce any milk with my daughter but hope to breast feed with this one, I'll be working part time but worried if it will last through a third kid. Anyone know roughly how many kids a pump will last through?

Re: How many kids does a pump last through?

I had a Medela PISA that only lasted through 2 kids. It was great for the first 2, but when I busted it out for number three (born a little less than four years after number 1), it wouldn't turn on. I get a free pump with each kid through work, so I didn't bother trying to figure it out because I had a new one, but that's how long it lasted. I would assume that for a part-time pumper (I pumped once a day until four months and then twice a day for a few months after that with each kid) it should last longer than that.

I've got an Ameda & it's barely lasted through my first. You should be eligible for a brand new breast pump through your insurance though. If you just google 'breast pump through insurance' you'll get a bunch of different sites showing you which of the different brands you can get through your insurance!

Thanks. I finally heard back from our insurance as to which ones they covered. I did plug mine in and it turned right on. I think I'm gong to wait to order a new one until I know I'm actually making milk.

I used my 1st medela pump & style through 4 kids(11 years), only use/work part time. This time I got a new one only bc insurance covered it.
