Can I still use it?
Had just finished expressing and the bottle was on the work surface.. was rinsing out expressing equipment ready to be resterilised and a drop of water fell into the expressed milk bottle..
Do I have to throw it away.. husband thinks it is not safe to use, but I'm not sure, it was only one drop in a 50ml bottle..

Kicking myself.. as that milk was not easy to come by!

Use it- IT WILL NOT harm your LO.

Anyway, they will be licking the cat before you know where you are and you'll wonder what you were ever worried about grin

I would use it if it were me.

Wouldn't even occur to me not to use it - but then my lo already has licked the cat grin

I think it will be ok too after all breastfeeding mums can hardly milton their nipples can they.

Yeah, it's fine unless your LO has underlying health issues. My hubbie's a worrier too, you don't have to tell 'em everything.

I'd also use it unless your baby has health issues. Wouldn't occur to me not to.

You don't say how old your baby is, but at 16 weeks, mine has already eaten dirt and grass (lying on picnic rug)!

He is nearly 6 weeks - but was early - should really have been born one week ago.
Agree with you all - spot on, can't Milton nipples and I'm sure if we had a cat he would have licked it by now!!
Thanks for advice x
