Re: Pump/Bottle cleaning question
Wow. I haven't ever cleaned the pump itself in a year of pumping. I didn't know it was neccessary
What I do is rinse the horns in hot water after I pump every time and then once a day use the sterilizer bags. My friend gave me the Avent steam sterilizer when she finished pumping and it's pretty great - no more bags to keep track of how many time you have used them.
If I were you, I would probably just wash out the bottle before you use it if it's been a long time since you've sterilized it.
I've only sterilized the tubing once and water got in there that never came out and it just seemed like a hassle. I have never done it since.
