So the folks at my office set up a room with a little fridge for me before I came back last week, which is awesome... except they got the worst fridge ever. It barely felt cold so I got a thermometer to put in there. It never goes below 44 degrees, and is more often above 50 degrees. That just isn't going to cut it for breast milk storage, so I have been using ice packs in an insulated bag.... mainly because I don't want to traipse through the entire office carrying milk and then store it in the main fridge. Although I am thinking I might get/make a little bag to put it in so I can do that discreetly.
I also don't have access to a sink without walking through the whole office carrying breast pump parts, plus it would still be wet when it was time to pump again. I had read other people just using the same pieces through the day, either keeping them in the fridge or relying on the storage times for room temp.
What do you guys think about keeping the pump pieces in the crappy fridge between pumping? And what do you think of the Medela wipes? I have some of those, but have just switched to the Purely Yours, which will be harder to wipe down than the Freestyle I was using. Plus I am always a little uncertain about wiping whatever is in those things all over the pump parts.
