For extra protection:

For extra germ removal, sanitize pump parts at least once daily. Sanitizing is especially important if your baby is less than 2 months old, was born prematurely, or has a weakened immune system due to illness or medical treatment.

Store safely until needed

Allow the clean pump parts, bottle brushes, and wash basins to air-dry thoroughly before storing to help prevent germs and mold from growing. Once completely dry, the items should be stored in a clean, protected area to prevent contamination during storage.

  • Wash hands. Wash hands well with soap and water.

  • Reassemble. Put together the clean, dry pump parts.

  • Store safely. Place reassembled pump kit in a clean, protected area such as inside an unused, sealable food storage bag. Store wash basins and bottle brushes in a clean area.

Key Tips for Handling Breast Pump Tubing

  • When used correctly, breast pump tubing does not touch the pumped milk and does not need to be cleaned routinely.

  • Keep a spare set of tubing on hand in case the set you are using gets soiled or damaged.

  • If your tubing has milk or mold in it, throw it away immediately because it is difficult to clean properly. Replace it with a new set of tubing.

  • If the outside of your tubing is soiled, wipe it with a damp cloth or disinfectant wipe.
