Oh I remember doing this. Thank goodness we were told about the sterilising part before we started... it really cut half of the hard work out.
With breast milk, you only have to sterilise once every 24 hours. I was double expressing every 2-3 hours and after I had finished all we had to do was wash the implements out with warm soapy water. We didn't even have a sterilising unit, we would just boil the expressing kit and bottles for 5 or 10 minutes on the stove. It really made expressing SO much easier!!
For formula though, you have to sterilise after every bottle use etc.
Hope that helps!
