Bolehkah Sewa Breastpump?

Sebagai ibu baru, tentu kita ingin mempersiapkan segalanya. Salah satunya memilih breastpump (selanjutnya disingkat BP) yang paling bagus. Masalahnya tidak ada BP yang paling bagus, karena setiap ibu akan memiliki jawaban yang berbeda. Karena setiap ibu memiliki anatomi payudara yang berbeda sehingga kenyamanan pun berbeda. Belum lagi masalah harga yaa...

Ada yang menyarankan sewa saja atau sewa dulu sebelum membeli suatu merk.

Pompa ASI tidak boleh dipinjamkan atau disewakan...Yang boleh digunakan oleh lebih dari 1 orang adalah pompa hospital grade, yang bagian2 yang kena ASI harus diganti setiap kali digunakan oleh orang yg berbeda. Pompa hospital grade biasanya besar, dan memang botolnya diganti setiap dipakai orang yang berbeda....Kalau pompa individu, kalau mau diberikan atau dipinjamkan, semua bagian yg kena ASI HARUS diganti. Apalagi kalau sistemnya sewa, kita tidak tahu siapa yg menyewa sebelum kita, kesehatannya gimana, lalu bagaimana si orang itu dan tempat sewanya menjaga kebersihannya. Di luar negeri tidak boleh ada persewaan utk pompa individu, kecuali pompa kategori hospital grade...


ini penjelasan ttg keamanannya ya kenapa tidak boleh


US FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) dan LLL (La Leche league), sebuah kelompok pendukung ibu menyusui terbesar di dunia yang terdiri dari para ahli laktasi tidak menyarankan penggunaan pompa ASI personal bekas(non hospital grade) yang mana bagian2 yang terkena ASI-nya tidak diganti ketika digunakan oleh pengguna yang lain. Karena potensi penularan penyakit akibat virus terjadi akibat hal ini lebih besar. 


Quote dari website LLL http://www.llli.org/llleaderweb/lv/lvjunjul04p54.html: "A mother can have a virus in her milk without even knowing that she is a carrier. Some of the potentially dangerous viruses that can be transmitted through human milk include cytomegalovirus (CMV) and HIV (AIDS). Most mothers with CMV, for example, are unaware that they are a carrier. 


The FDA says:


There are certain risks presented by breast pumps that are reused by different mothers if they are not properly cleaned and sterilized. These risks include the transmission of infectious diseases...FDA believes that the proper cleaning and sterilization of breast pumps requires the removal of any fluid that has entered the pumping mechanism itself. If proper sterilization of the breast pump cannot be achieved, FDA recommends that it not be used by different mothers." dan It is not advisable to use a previously owned breast pump. Breast pumps are single-user products, or personal care items, much like a toothbrush, and are registered with the FDA as single user items. For safety, breast pumps should never be shared, resold, or lent among mothers. 


Dari FDA sendiri dijelaskan:


There’s also the decision of whether to buy or rent a breast pump. Many hospitals, lactation consultants and specialty medical supply stores rent breast pumps for use by multiple users, Daws-Kopp notes.


These pumps are designed to decrease the risk of spreading contamination from one user to the next, she says, and each renter needs to buy a new accessories kit that includes breast-shields and tubing.


“Sometimes these pumps are labeled “hospital grade,” says Daws-Kopp. “But that term is not one FDA recognizes, and there is no consistent definition. Consumers need to know it doesn’t mean the pump is safe or hygienic.”


Daws-Kopp adds that different companies may mean different things when they label a pump with this term, and that FDA encourages manufacturers to instead use the terms “multiple user” and “single user” in their labeling. “If you don’t know for sure whether a pump is meant for a single user or multiple users, it’s safer to just not get it,” she says.


The same precaution should be taken for “used” or second-hand pumps. 


Even if a used pump looks really clean, says Michael Cummings, M.D., an obstetrician-gynecologist at FDA, potentially infectious particles may survive in the breast pump and/or its accessories for a surprisingly long time and cause disease in the next baby.
