I have a day-long trade show to attend and am not sure how to pump away from home....It is at the San Diego Convention Center. There is parking below the convention center, so assuming I get a spot there I guess I could go to my car the 3 times I need to pump. (My only other option would be to haul everything around all day and pump in the bathroom but that seems unwieldy!)
My two questions are:
1) How do I clean my pump parts between sessions? I thought rinsing them right after pumping was important so as to not get a film/buildup on the parts. I have 2 sets of everything but not 3 to get me through the day...
2) I know I can store the expressed milk in a cooler w/ ice packs. How long is this expressed milk good for? I would assume it isn't good for as long as it would be in a refrigerator (i.e. 5-7 days) but longer than if left at room temperature (10 hrs). Will I need to use the milk that night? The next day? Or will it be good for a few days once I put it in the fridge at home?
My plan is to pump mid-morning, just after the trade show's formal lunch, then just before driving home (~2 hr drive).
By the way I have the Lansinoh Double Electric Breast Pump.
