How to Keep Your Pump Kit Clean

Babies grow quickly in the first year of life by drinking breast milk or infant formula. Careful cleaning, sanitizing, and storage of your baby’s bottles and your breast pump parts (if you pump milk) can prevent germs from contaminating the milk you feed your baby. Learn more about how to keep your breast pump clean and how to clean, sanitize and store baby bottles to help keep your baby healthy.

Providing breast milk is one of the best things you can do for your baby’s health and development. Pumping your milk is one way to provide breast milk to your baby. However, germs can grow quickly in breast milk or breast milk residue that remains on pump parts. Following these steps can keep your breast pump clean and help protect your baby from these germs. If your baby was born prematurely or has other health concerns, your baby’s health care providers may have more recommendations for pumping breast milk safely.
