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.
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)
