How do I clean the breastpump kit?


1.  Finish pumping.

  • While the pump is still running, disconnect tubing from breastshields.
  • Continue to let pump run for 2 minutes with tubing attached.  This will eliminate condensation that naturally results from humidity.

2.  Take apart kit and store breastmilk.

  • With tubing still connected to pump, separate all parts of your kit that come in contact with your breast or breastmilk (breastshields, connectors, bottles, valves, membranes).

3.  Wash kit.

  • Rinse all separated parts in cool water to remove breastmilk.
  • Wash and Rinse all separated parts in warm, soapy water.
  • Rinse all separated parts with clear water.


  • Wash all separated parts on top rack of dishwasher.
