How do I use breastmilk storage bags?

Top 6 Tips for Using Breastmilk Storage Bags

  1. Store your milk in disposable breastmilk storage bags specifically designed for breastmilk.

  2. Freeze milk in 2 to 5 oz portions.  Small amounts will thaw more quickly.  You will waste less milk this way and will avoid over-feeding your baby.

  3. Leave some extra room at the top of the container so the bag won't burst, breastmilk is an aqueous liquid and expands when frozen.

  4. Seal containers tightly! 

  5. Write the date on a piece of tape on stick it on the bag and use the oldest milk first.

  6. It is ideal to lay the storage bags flat when freezing to maximize freezer space.
