Avatar m tn No. When combining milk it has to be same temp. I suggest pump put in fridge, pump again different bottle store in fridge once fresh milk is cold like other bottle combine it then you can freeze.
Avatar f tn Hi ladies! Does anyone know if I can store Breast milk in ziplock freezer bags? The bags I have made specifically for breast milk don't close very well and I worry about freezer burn. If you have any advice I'd love to hear it!
Avatar f tn I used breast milk storage bags when I mursed Gavin. It really depends on how much milk you will produce or the nature of pumping...to feed or to store extra. I think 25 bags come in a box . I would freeze them standing up and put them all in a storage box or a bigger freezer Ziploc. I tell you, I wil pumping as soon as my milk comes in so I will have plenty to store. My friend who had her baby in April, she had over30 4oz bags in her first week.
Avatar f tn I'm going to get the gerber bottles from walmart. My sister has them & they work fine so i thought I'd try them, but if I'm pumping what bottles would I store the milk in? Or should I just get storage bags?? & if i get storage bags do i just pour the milk in the bottle when im ready to feed? Ugh. So confused lol help!
Avatar f tn m not too sure about throwing it in the freezer, but i know you can use breast milk storage bags for that. and they can be in the freezer for up to 6-12mo. i say ask your doctor to be completely sure though!

Avatar f tn I prepared by getting my pump before delivery. The one thing I wish I hadn't waited for was milk storage supplies for what I pumped. I git a medela storage set and then freezer bags but that's it.
Avatar f tn U actually freeze breast milk in special bags made for storage
317245 tn?1258737545 I am going to start pumping for storage pretty soon. Whant kinds of storage bags have you used and liked the best?
229857 tn?1319029907 I LOVED the storage bags. I made so much milk that we were able to stock pile in the freezer and all she got was breastmilk from me. It was great - just takes a lot of time (with all the nursing and pumping- but I wouldn't change anything.
7923170 tn?1412999504 Soo were on a very short budget and I want to breast feed to help with costs n not to mention its healthy for baby and me... My biggest concern is how to store the breast milk. I have an idea to use jelly jars my gram uses to freeze her strawberry jelly she makes... But I don't know if they would bust... I don't plan on filling them to the very tippie top.
Avatar f tn I'm trying to choose the best breast pump and milk storage system I can find. I travel extensively for work and I'll even be pumping in the car. I found the Kiinde system; which looks awesome. But, I'm not sure what I will be able to express from each breast at each pumping session. Ideally, I would like to pump directly into the storage bag, freeze it, thaw it, and feed directly from the bag. That is how the Kiinde system is intended to be used.
Avatar f tn I'm doing research about storage for breast milk. I want something that's cost effective and will work. I'm not looking to create a huge stash of frozen milk because I don't have the space in my freezer nor do I have a deep freeze (yay apartment living). I have looked into the disposable bags. What a money sink. Plus the reviews I read do not put much faith into me using them. I came across a mom's blog about using mason jars.
Avatar f tn Came with the basics, pump of course, the breast shields (too big have to size down), storage bottles, and 8 breastfeeding pads. For those of you pumping, what additional accessories did yall purchase? What is necessary and what shouldn't I worry about? I don't want to blow too much money on things that aren't completely necessary! I'm a ftm so I'm clueless.
Avatar f tn If not you can just use those as attachments for just the pumping part. There are breast milk storage bags, which can be frozen or refrigerated...if you can't find that brand off bottles that came with the pump you might just have to buy different bottles. I've used avent for all 3 of my babies..I used playtex bottles with disposable liners for my baby who was very premature because the nipples worked for her...so just choose a brand that works for you and baby.
3054705 tn?1348415479 If u freeze you milk in milk bags I believe its good for a year. To unfreeze your milk heat up a cup of water not to hot! And place the bag in the cup to unfreeze. I lovedfreezing my milk because u can store it away for along time. And take it on the go .
Avatar f tn Hey ladies. I'm a first time mommy. I plan on breast feeding. What accessories aside from the actual breast pump do I need? I know I need storage for the beat milk, but I'd there anything I need?
Avatar f tn Put it in the lansinoh storage bags specifically for breast feeding, then label it and stick it in the freezer.
Avatar f tn That really is all you will need...maybe some storage bags for your breast milk...My advice would be to store any extra milk when your engorged at the beginning to help build a supply in the freezer and to start putting the nipple cream on daily a few weeks before you deliver...It helped mine not get cracked and sore.
4194487 tn?1370046144 They sell bags specifically for breast milk. Even a rack that holds up to 10bags for the refrigerator or the freezer.
Avatar f tn Usually breast pumps come with one or two bottles (depending on whether you got a single or double pump). Once you have pumped dump the milk into breast milk storage bags, or you can pour the milk into what ever type of bottles you and your baby prefer to use.
Avatar f tn Can you use different brands for breast feeding accessories for example if you have a medela pump can you use regular bottles and milk storage bags? or does everything have to be medela? thanks in advance foe your responses!

118074 tn?1228329003 Can you drop your breast milk storage bag directly into the Playtes drop in bottle? My MIL and SIl told me I could?
Avatar f tn I am going to need to get a breast pump. I've heard some insurances will cover them but I need to have one so what is the best kind and where is the place to get one? How can I store the breast milk... can I freeze it or something so when I'm at work n my husband has the baby he has it to give her?
