Intermountain Healthcare answeredYou can sterilize your pump kit by placing it in your dishwasher or boiling the kit for 20 minutes. If you are at the hospital, use the steam sterilizer found in the breast pump rooms. Medela® has sanitizing bags for breast pump supplies. Follow the manufacturer’s directions for use. If you boil your pump kit and you have “hard water,” add 1 to 2 tablespoons of white vinegar to the pot of water. This will prevent mineral deposits from building up on your kit. You need to sterilize your kit once each day.
