Rachel Goldstein:We have a sanitizing steam setting on our dishwasher. I have two sets of pump parts. I use one for 12 hours with refrigerating them between pumps after rinsing with hot water then once a night when we wash bottles I sterilize my pump parts. If you keep the parts in the fridge they are safe to use repeatedly without cleaning for up to 12 hours.
I've been washing in warm water and then sanitizing in a steam bag after every use, which is tiresome. I think after the thrush is gone, I'll switch to your system!
jayro10:I just hand wash in hot, soapy water and let them air dry.
Also, DH sterilizes them every few weeks in boiling water.
Wash with hot water and soap after each use and sterilize every night with the steam bags.
once I go back to work and pump more times during the day I'll start using the fridge trick
