    Washing breast pump

    Hi all, I'd like to know what brand of dish soap you use to clean your pump. Currently, I only clean it by putting it into my electric steriliser, but since breastmilk has fat in it, it might be better to put it in soap water first!

    I usually used water and the bottle cleanser I had for the bottles, then sterilized all parts after each use.

    I don't use mine often but when I do, I use ordinary dishwashing soap. Then before I use them I sterilise.

    I use pigeon bottle soap on baby bottles, teethers, spoons and breast pump parts. Can find it at supermarket & mannings etc.
