A tip for working moms…

Keep your pumping flanges in a sealed plastic bag in the fridge or cooler bag.  You do not need to wash and sterilise after each pumping session – wash it when you get home, sterilise, and use a new bag for each day.  This will cut down on time spent pumping, which will make it more sustainable.
