Hello...I am a 1st time mom...my daughter is almost 7 weeks old now.I will go back to work as a teacher when she is almost 12 weeks...I have been using my pump in stly to gather a supply now...but have a few questions I REALLY need answered..
1) can I pump straight into the same bag or ALL day and then freeze..I have been putting it in the fridge til the next feeding..after she is done I am pumping out extra straight into the bag and at the end of the day freezing....I am hearing conflicting ideas.
2) what steps do I need to take to clean my pump after each use...When I boil my parts they get a white film on them...which leads to question 3
3) Is this film from boiling safe? or should I use the dishwasher???
4) Is there a Medela glass bottle, or are the soft plastic ones safe..I am hearing that hard plastic or glass is better, but cannot find any to fit my pump....
I know this is a lot, I just am sooo consumed with her having breast milk and don’t want to mess up..
