Re: Drying bottles and tubing
How many times a day will you pump at work? For a while I was weird about the water and would have two bottles for every time I pumped, so it wasn't an issue. Then it got old to be washing so many bottles. So I started using one for every time and then an extra for the other side - and had water in the milk. It really depends on your comfort level.
On the tubing - is there a lot of water in there? I sterilized mine once and there is still moisture in there - after at least 6 more months of pumping! I just look at it to make sure there isn't any mold.
How did you get milk in the tubing?? I know that it can happen, but never experienced it.
Oh - and some mama's just refrigerate the bottles and don't rinse them at all.
