    I bought additional sets so I wouldn't need to worry about milk contamination and washing/sterilizing at work. I just washed all the sets when I got home.

I figured if bm stays good at room temperature for 8 hours it would be just fine to be in my bag the 3.5 hours between pumps (I only pumped twice, once at 9:30 and at 1:00). I did refrigerate my milk. I didn't feel like my babies milk was compromised by leaving the pumps unwashed between the one session. HTH
    I do it for 3 sessions It's w/in an 8 hour period and I've never had an issue.
