If you are using the same pump, have the suction checked at a local breastfeeding store. Yes, new tubes and "seals" if you are using a medela. The seals wear out and the tubes are prone to mold etc. Inspect the other pieces and if in good condition, sterilize and use again. And treat yourself to a second or more set. It is awesome to have extras.
