    Default Water in pump tubes.

    Hi All!

    So I sterlized my pumping tubes in a steam bag (microwave) this morning. I only did that because I dropped my tubing in a cup a of coffee...oops!

    I started pumping hours later not thinking about it and noticed when i was done that water was creaping into the connector! Should I toss out the milk? I'm a super worry wort, but milk is like gold to me. It's about 10 ounces, which is a TON for me to even pump!

    What kind of pump is it?

    I wouldnt worry about it myself I often grab bottles that are still wet from washing or steaming and pump into them.

    Id be more worried about water getting into my pump!

    I wouldn't worry about it either. Everytime I sterilized my tubes, I'd get a little water in there, and it would work its way out at some point, probably into the milk now that you mention it! But it's just a drop, after all.
