    Default Random question - steam droplets in breast pump bottle??

    I've just started pumping. When I sterilise the bottle that attaches to the pump I've noticed that there are steam droplets of water within the bottle. Even when left to air dry these remain...

    Is it a problem to have that tiny bit of water added to the breast milk?

    No, I don't think it's a problem because the amount of water is very small and the water is very clean.

    also, just in case you dont know - unless your baby has a compromised immune system or somethomg like that, regular sterilizing of pump parts & bottles is not necessary.
