Breast pump cleaning instructions
After each use:
1. Remove the tubing (and cap) from the kit; these do not need to be washed.
2. Dismantle the pump kit completely.
3. Carefully and thoroughly wash all parts of the kit in hot soapy water (or in a dishwasher). The small white valve tears easily, so it is important to wash it carefully.
4. Rinse thoroughly with running water and place each part on the upturned lid of the container prior to drying.
5. Dry the kit and the lid of the container on a paper towel or kitchen paper – not on a tea towel or cloth.
6. Place the kit in the clean, dry container and cover with the lid.
Before each use:
1. Remove the lid of the container.
2. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before handling / assembling the pump kit.
Once a day: Wash the container in hot soapy water, rinse and dry on a paper towel. You do not need to sterilise your kits, or any bottles/teats used that are used solely for your expressed milk. You may choose to sterilise if your baby is premature, unwell or has an underlying health issue.

Loan of an OBS pump costs £10 for the first week and £5 per week for the second and third week. If this is not affordable for you, please contact us in confidence:
We ask that pumps are borrowed for a maximum of three weeks; if kept for longer than this, the loan charge will be £20 a week up until six weeks. If a pump is not returned within six weeks, then the borrower will be responsible for the cost of a new replacement pump of the same model, in addition to the usual cost of pump loan. (Cost at 13.10.18: £129.99)
