If I had no other option I would want an Ameda with the hygenikit (Purely Yours?). If I remember correctly the hygenikit prevents the milk from backing into the motor. I think this is pretty much the same...
I tried "searching" specifically in this forum and in archives; and I tried searching for the ongoing "Bread Thread" but I can't find it. You get a lot of hits with the word "bread". So can anyone recommend a good recipe for a pizza dough recipe using only unbleached Whole White Wheat flour? Currently I use the 1 Lb recipe which came with my 20 year old Bread Man machine. I triple it and I substitute about half the refined White flour with King Arthur's unbleached...

I think whatever "prompt" or "pop up" I got when I thought I'd...

I would think Medela could use some pumps to research why/where they weaken and to improve their product. But as you said, the application of that information does not = profit, so it isn't likely. They do make hospital grade, multi-user pumps. They cost about $1000.00. Or you can rent one for about $50.00 a month. So they do have the...
I just learned that you can only post one listing per category every 48 hours. I know that virtual yard sales (tag sales, garage sales, etc.) are prohibited but I have seen various posts with related items in one listing. E.g.: under baby and kids you might see one posting with a baby carrier, a pack n play, a stroller and crib. The price is usually noted as $1.00 and if the item titles are short enough there might be enough room for a price in the heading. ...

The mom I was helping actually told me she absolutely did not want another mom taking it from her garbage because she felt it wasn't safe. To me it looks like the best way is to contact the electronic recyclers and see if they will except the motor. Or maybe Medela would except old pumps for...
Quote: Originally Posted by Amy0417 That's good advice but I work at a lactation center and am becoming a lactation consultant and since you're "not suppossed" to use a used pump... I would feel wrong giving out that advice if KWIM. Yet, I'm all about hand-me-downs I have very strong opinions on this. For DD1 I took my sister's used Medela double pump. As a nurse she completely understands the concept of blood born pathogens. So that...

But if you just want to do one or two posts, you can just do that. I set up a new Craig's List account. I have a lot of stuff to list and I think I will need the edit function. Thanks, ~Cath
