    How often do you.....

    Sanitize things like breast pump parts, bottles, pacifiers, etc.?

    I'm sanitizing everything tomorrow, but this will be the first time since the "sanitize before use" boil. I feel like it is time to make sure it is all squeaky clean.

    I "try" to once a week but things don't always go according to plan.

    Coincidentally, I sterilized my baby's "feeding tools" today. I seriously love the TT steam sterilizer. I want to say every couple of days but lately I have been very negligent.

    I didn't pump often at all. I sanitized when I bought everything and then each time, right after I used a bottle or the pump, they were washed with super hot water by hand and then washed again in the dishwasher. I felt like that was enough.

    You should get some of those steam/sterilizing bags.

    I did on first use. My pump I use so much I rinse in hot water and let air dry. I don't really sanitize in the strict sense, any of my stuff often. I will throw some things in the dishwasher every couple monts if I feel they need it but not often. I do have sanitizing wipes I use rarely but if I come into contact or Naomi's stuff comes in contact with something overly icky.

    DH is really big on reminding me that overly sterile environments are unhealthy. So I have learned to relax on it.

    If I had to number it I would say I do a wipe down every other month.

    I did the first time I brought things home. And only when we both had thrush. Other then that just did regular washing.
