What's your bottle/cleaning routine?
Okay, ladies, one of the things I LOVE about BFing is the lack of bottle care...but now I'm back at work so it's pumping and dealing with bottles!
I feel like I'm probably not setting my nightly routine up efficiently and I'm looking for tips. So when I'm at work I pump into six bottles since I pump three times. These bottles are marked with DS' name per the daycare policy. That night when we pick him up they send the empties home from that day with me (those are also marked with his name). So that night I wash all those bottles, along with my pump parts, lay them out to dry for the night, and the next morning I pack the washed empties for pumping into, and I put nipples and caps on the new bottles for that day (that I pumped the day before -- they require full bottles with nipples and won't let me leave what I pumped that day).
I feel like I'm spending a lot of time each night washing bottles and pump parts. What is your routine like and how can I make more time to spend with DS and less time dealing will bottles?
