I would think it's okay to sell it. Just clean it really good.

No...my dr said you can't reuse home used breast pumps. Only the hospital ones because something to do with sanitation. That's not to say ppl still don't do it.

Is it one of the ones that you use your own kit (tubes, funnel things, etc.) with? If so, I say yes.

You need to disinfect it and then yeah, some people will buy used pumps.  Typically though, they would buy the more spendy ones like the Medela.  Those you can replace any parts that you feel may be unsanitary.

Generally pumps are one use items, and since gerber is not a reliable company that puts out new parts I personally wouldn't buy it but many people will......

Medela, Ameda and lansinoh are better pumps and the companies sell parts

There's always someone looking for a bargain. Wash it & sell it.

I had a used breast pump, only because I knew the girl who had it previously. You can sanitize the entire thing and replace any parts you don't feel comfortable using.

I'll wash it and post it and I'll see if someone buys it.
