Find some answers to the most frequently asked questions about the Express and Go™ Line.
How long does it take to heat a bottle or pouch?
The answer to this varies from 2 minutes to half an hour, depending on the starting temperature of your milk, the amount of it, and whether it’s in a pouch or bottle. Here’s a quick guide:
Can I sterilize/use a dishwasher for all parts? (adapters, pouch holder etc.)
Absolutely. All parts of the Pump and Go system, other than the storage pouches, can be sterilized either in the microwave/ electric steam sterilizer and can be put in the dishwasher too!
Can I use any nipple with my storage pouch?
Yep! All of our Closer to Nature nipples (except Advanced Comfort and Ultra) can be used with your pouch.
Can I use the pouches in the original Tommee Tippee electric food and bottle warmer?
We wouldn’t really recommend this to be honest - but there is a specially designed Express and Go pouch and bottle warmer that will do the job far better!
Can the storage pouches be recycled?
Absolutely! We do however recommend that you check your local recycling guidelines first as they can differ across the country.
How far can I fill the pouch up to?
No more than 6oz please! Make sure that you squeeze out any excess air from the pouch before you place in the fridge or freezer.
How long can I store my breast milk in the refrigerator or freezer?
The ‘rules of 6’ is a handy guide to go by: 6 hours at room temperature, 6 days in the fridge (0 – 4C/32 - 39F),
and 6 months in the freezer (-18C/0.4F or lower). If you’re storing in the fridge or freezer, make sure you pop the date on the pouch or bottle or it’s likely to get a bit lost!
How many times can I use the storage pouch?
Just once. That’s because they’re pre-sterilized to protect your little one’s tummy.
Is there a ‘use by date’ for the empty storage pouches?
Great question! The bag should remain sterile for up to 3 years as long as it’s sealed and in good condition – i.e. the lid has not been removed and there’s no damage to the pouch.
The measurements on my breast milk pouch don’t seem right?
They key thing here is to flatten out the bottom of the pouch, so that the whole pouch gets filled. If you don’t do this, it may look like there’s more milk that there actually is. Expanding the pouch also helps it stand upright on a flat surface, which is pretty important too - the last thing you want is for it to topple over and spill your precious breast-milk!
