I have a medela pump and use it maybe 1-3 times a day depending on the day. I know when I worked fulltime I changed them every few months I think. I just don't know how often now since I don't use it as much.

I've probably only changed mine like 2 times since having DS1. I should change them, but I also rotate 2 sets of horns, so my membranes are not getting as used as if I were using the same ones all the time. I'll probably change them all in 6 months.

Ah yes, I also just remembered that I do use 2 sets of horns and membranes too. I'm probably good for awhile then. I'm still getting a good output. I was surprised I just pumped and got 2.5 oz total after she had just eaten. Usually after she nurses I only get like an ounce.

I think its about every 3 months, but if you're not pumping as much you probably wont need to as often. Just watch your output and if it seems to not be doing as well, that could be the culprit.

I haven't changed mine yet... but I do have 3 sets of horns. I was tired of washing so often! Now I only have to do it 2x a week (I do rinse after each pump session and I only pump at work)
