Can I sterilise the manual breast pump parts in boiling water?

Is the Lansinoh® Manual Breast Pump BPA-free and BPS-free?
Yes, the Lansinoh® Manual Breast Pump is both BPA and BPS free. The bottles are made of polypropylene plastic which is also chemical-free and additive-free.
What is BPA and BPS and why should I choose breastfeeding products which do not contain these?
BPA or bisphenol-A is a chemical used primarily in the production of polycarbonate plastics and acts as an estrogen imposter, being widely known as a hormone disrupter. Studies have linked BPA to cancer, depression, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and a number of other ailments. BPA can be especially dangerous in pregnancy, infancy and childhood – so much so that many governments around the world have banned BPA in the production of baby bottles and other products.
BPS or bisphenol S is an alternative to BPA used by some manufacturers as a plasticiser to replace BPA. BPS is also a hormone disrupter and is considered to be equally unsafe, however this is currently allowed for the production of baby bottles and similar products.
Because safety is a top priority for Lansinoh we have taken proactive measures to ensure the Lansinoh® Manual Breast Pump is both BPA and BPS FREE.
What is the Lansinoh® Manual Breast Pump made of?
The Manual Breast Pump parts are made of Polypropylene, Silicone, Polyethylene and SEPS.
Can I pump from the Lansinoh® Manual Breast Pump directly into Lansinoh® Breastmilk Storage Bags?
Because the Lansinoh® Breastmilk Storage Bags have a double zipper closure, they will not fit directly on either the Manual or Electric breast pumps. You can however express directly into the bottle and then either transfer the breastmilk into a Breastmilk storage bag or use the sealing disc provided with the Manual Breast Pump to seal the container for storing.
