    Shelly, I wish I had read your advice when I was still pumping! Would have saved so much time!! I washed everything at night at home every.single.night. boo! If I end up having to pump again I'm definately not doing all that every night!

    I did wash and sterilize some parts at work, because I didn't like putting refrigerated cold flanges on my nipples. They're nice and toasty out of the sterilizer bag.

    I have done the refrigerated pump parts when pumping at home (I work from home once day a week), but never put then in the communal fridge at work. I suppose I could try that, cover the parts up and stick them in the back so people don't have to move them around to get to their lunch I try to make my milk as inconspicuous as possible in the shared refrigerator because I don't want people feeling like then need to tiptoe around it or anything.

    Usually I rinse with warm water after morning pumping, then wash with soapy water after afternoon pumping, then sanitize every weekend. Those Medela microwave sanitizer bags changed my life. Seriously.

    Right. But it would change again pretty majorly if you didn't have to do those first two steps every day wouldn't it?

    Way too lazy for formula
