Ok so I leave my pump and parts at work mon-fri. This is how i clean. Is this OK??
1st pump 930 am. I pump and put my Milk in refridgerator. I leave out my extra oz to add to next pumping. I leave all parts unwashed and out.
2nd pump 1230pm I I pump and add to extra from morning to make 2nd bottle. I leave out fresh extra oz. and I wash out my pump parts with the medela quick clean wipes.
3rd pump 330pm I pump and make 3rd bottle with the extra oz. and my fresh pumped. I then take all my pump parts and bottles that i use and rinse them out and air dry for the next day.
after the day is done. I always end up with around 3 4 oz bottles give or take a couple oz. depending on how much she ate in the morning.
My questions are
do you think the Medela quick clean wipes are safe? I don't want them to leave chemicals in my milk. They say its safe, but they say that about GMO and pesticides too...
Do you think leaving my extra oz. out for 3 hours to add to fresh milk is ok?
Do you think I need to soap my pump parts every night?
i hate walking around my work with my pump parts as its awkard enough working with people that already think I am weird for pumping and nursing. I am the ONLY person at my work wiht a baby as well. Most of them don't have children or had kids in the 70's and formula fed or only BF for 6 weeks.
So i like to keep everything in the office i pump in. I keep my milk in fridge in a cooler so everyone thinks its my lunch box.
But I just want to make sure I am safe enough. I give my parts the sniff test and they pass that so I am assuming this is ok. ??
