I found a Medela In Style Advanced pump for $50 on Craigslist, never used. It was manufactured in June of 2011. I am not currently pregnant, but we are TTC. Is there an age limit on pumps? Knowing what you know now, would you buy this?

No there isn't an age limit, but go in knowing you wont have a warranty or anything and if it isn't sealed in the box still, it should be treated as used.

I have a Bailey pump (not as common as a Medela-or any others, for that matter!) that Ive had since my oldest was tiny. He's almost eleven now and it still works great. I work full time and would pump 2-3 times a day, and it still works great. I've had to replace the flange seals, which you are obviously supposed to do anyway, but I'm super pleased with the $150 I spent on it that long ago.

My point is-I don't think there is a shelf life to pumps. If it was made in 2011, that's still new to me. I'd get a Medela if I had a chance-I used it in the hospital during two of my babies' NICU stays. Like the previous post mentioned, there may not be a warranty, but that's standard for most things you can get on Craig's and the like.

my friend bought a used Medela PIS when her first was born (6 years ago!) and used it for three kids pumping until they were 1 yo at work! I bought a used one, never used, but someone did own it, $50, worked great.
