Re: Pumping at work

I pump twice a day now, but when I was pump 3 x I would use all four bottles for the first two sessions and then for the third I would pour the second session milk in with the first because they were both already cold and then rinse and reuse the two bottles I just emptied....hope that makes sense Sometime I had more milk from the first two session than would fit in two bottles so I would just pump straight in to two bottles with milk already in them and it was never an issue.

Re: Pumping at work

I too have been mixing the warm with cold. After the first pump I put everything in the fridge, second pump is added to the first and so on. I read too that as long as it is within the same 24 hour period it should be safe.

Re: Pumping at work

My first pump of the day is stored in the fridge, subsequent pumps are added to the first until the bottle is filled, then start a new bottle. I too read that it's okay to add to cool milk as long as it is within 24 hours.

Re: Pumping at work

On a similar note, when I pump at work is it OK to NOT rinse the pump parts between uses? There isn't a very convenient sink for me to use, other than taking everything to the restroom. If the breastmilk can sit in the bottle at my desk for several hours without a problem, can it also sit on the pump parts? Obviously I would wash everything when I get home.

Re: Pumping at work

I have never (well maybe a few times) rinsed between uses on the same day. I used to store them in the fridge with my milk, but got over cold horns really quickly and decided to just keep the horns in the little bag I bring them to work in and not worry about keeping them cold. I have not had any issues doing that. It may not be ideal, but it works for me. It might not work for everyone though.

I'm not sure if it's necessary, but I bring three pump-part assemblies and 4 or 5 bottles. I have a dirty and clean pump part ziplock and I use one assembly for each session. I don't want to mess around with rinsing stuff and pouring milk while I'm at work. I keep the bottles in the insulated bag with the ice pack and do the combining, cleaning, and repacking at home. I always send the milk from the day before to daycare along with one or two from the freezer.
