Re: Back up milk storage

So do you keep adding to the bag each time you pump if you're only getting a small amount? Or do you keep pumping into a bottle and then put it in a bag and then freeze it?

Wow! I make 2 oz total. I'm nursing and then pumping about an hour letter. I hate that I don't make more because it is very hard to store any for later. I store in 2 to 4oz. I save the milk all day and then pour into a storage bag at the end of the day.

Are you asking me?

You *can* do this, if it's within a couple of hours, but I don't.

Re: Back up milk storage

i initially started freezing in 2 oz portions but i think that typically i would always do a 4 oz bottle so when i went back to work i was a little annoyed that i kinda "wasted" bags on only 2oz...i think 4 oz is a good portion but if you do 2oz those could be used when you start to introduce cereal to your baby.

Re: Back up milk storage

I like to have some 4 oz full bottle / meal portions as well as some 2 oz "snack" portions for when ds can't wait for me to get there, but it will not be too long until I'm back to nurse him.

Yep..I also store in 2-4oz increments...6oz later when my babies are a little older.

God bless!
