    Default Boil pump parts again?

    So, it is about time to start pumping again to build a freezer stash before I have to go back to work 4 week from today . I have not used my pump in about 2 years. Should I boil everything again or should I just give it a good wash before using again?

    Personally, I would (and will be) boil them (remembering the tubing should be done separately - melting my tubing sucked). Also, you might want to take your pump and get the suction checked out. We can take them in to the lactation store here and they hook them up to a machine which shows a smiley face if it is working properly.

    Have fun pumping :sarcastic

    • my surprise baby: the one and only D-Man born 3 weeks late (5/5/08) at 9 lbs 14 oz and 21.5 inches, and
    • the shock H-Girl born about a week late (10/7/09) at 8lbs 15oz and 20.75 inches.

    If I am here I am covered in baby (probably two) and fighting for control of the keyboard.

    Family beds are awesome

    Wondering if you have PPD? Take the screening and see your doctor. You deserve to feel better.
