I just use wipes, and wash them when I get home. They make wipes specifically to clean breast pumps on Amazon.
I keep all of my parts in the fridge between sessions. It’s a bit of trial and error at first to see how many sessions I needed in order to produce the amount he was consuming. I settled on pumping every 3 hours.
With my Spectra I rinse the flanges with hot water and let dry immediately after use, washing fully when I get time/ at end of day. With my Elvie Stride (wearable pump) I put in a clean container in fridge then wash at end of day.
My LO is 8 months and I’ve been back at work for 4 months now. I pump every 3-4 hrs. I find not going longer than 4 hours hasn’t dipped my supply.
I use a handsfree pump set up, wash pump parts at home night before and then carry them in a reusable zip lock bag inside a designated insulated lunch bag with an ice pack.
As long as I keep the pump parts in contact with milk chill I keep reusing until I get home to wash.
I have breast pumping wipes for in between sessions at work I got from Target.
