Women who choose to breast pump have reported using their pump up to 12 times a day! While it might not seem like a huge deal, regular cleaning and maintenance of your breast pump is crucial for a healthy, happy life with your new baby.
All breast pump parts that come in contact with breast milk, including tubing, bottles, and breast shields should be cleaned after use. Don’t worry about trying to completely sterilize every single part, because it’s nearly impossible to do from home and you don’t have fully sterilize every single element of the pump to consider the parts safe or clean. Most residues can be washed away with warm water and dish soap. Some people even choose to sterilize their tubing by boiling it. If you do put any of the parts in water, make sure to allow your parts to completely air dry before using them again.
Not cleaning your pump can lead to bacterial growth and viruses that can make baby sick. If you aren’t using a closed system breast pump, milk might end up getting in the tubing, which will develop mold growth. In turn, this moldy tubing will transfer germs to the breast milk you are feeding your baby, which is not recommended.
Many breast pump manufacturers have made their own cleaning kits to get the job done easier.
They are pretty inexpensive, too! The Medela Cleaning Kit comes with 5 Quick Clean Micro-Steam Bags, two 24-count packs of Quick Clean Breast Pump and Accessory Wipes.
Other breast pump cleaning supplies can be found for a low price online.
Always check your breast pump manual for full cleaning instructions. But here are a few tips and resources to help you get started:
If you want to clean the inner units of your breast pump, simply wipe the motor and inner elements down with a clean paper towel or soft cloth after each use. Some manufacturers make wipes specifically for cleaning breast pumps, which can be convenient when you’re away from home.
Also, remember the importance of using BPA-free products! All breast pumps from Aeroflow Breastpumps are guaranteed to be BPA free for the health of your child. Ensuring that your bottles and pump components are BPA-free is an important step, as Bispenol A is a chemical that has been associated with adverse health issues in children. It is best to make sure that no products coming in contact with your newborn contain BPA.
