Re: Lansinoh Milk bags???

I use sterile specimen cups (like the kind you pee in at the doctor's office. They work great, stack nicely and can be washed/and reused. I had problems with seams bursting when I pumped with my previous babe, so I bought these this time around and think they are fantastic. I also like that they are 4 oz each, which allows me to freeze the milk in small portions.

Re: Lansinoh Milk bags???

Personally I love the first year bags. Unsure if they are bisphenol-a free but I think they are less $$ than the other two. I have tried both before but keep coming back to the first years. Side note I also make my own apple juice and freeze it in the first year bags, its the easiest way for me to thaw a little at a time!

I use the Gerber bags. Never thought of bisphenol.

I beleive that the bisphenol is only used in hard plastics to prevent them shattering.

I have used the gerber seal and go freezer bags. They have a very very strong seam and the seal is excellent. If you use them just as a warning they are a pain to get open but I have dropped them, gotten them stuck inbetween the shelf and the fridge wall and nothing has happend to them. The only way you can reuse them is if you have a way to really steralize them well. I asked my dr about reuseing them and she said that if I could find a way to get them to stay in the dishwasher and wash them without soap then they could be reused but run water in them first before reusing them to make sure there were no leaks. If you want to find them for less than 7 bucks a box try ebay. I got 12 boxes for 30 dollars. that included shipping.

I don't know any sites, but I have a box that has not been used since I use medela bottles for storage. I could FFS to you if you want it. I think there are 25 bags.

I'm curious how you can stand to pump so much!?! Your body initially produces more milk than LO will take but will adjust as you learn what your LO needs... IMO you shouldn't NEED to pump at all and the more you do, the more you will produce. ...I guess I just HATE pumping!!

I think you should not re-use the bags to freeze milk in. To my knowledge, milk that will be frozen should be stored in STERILE containers. Milk that will be stored fresh in the fridge can just be in clean (not necessarily sterile) containers. I don't know how you would sterilize the bags without them losing their integrity. But you can rinse and recycle them! (at least, our city takes that kind of plastic)

Of course, this doesn't really help the $$ issue... what we do here now is have the freezer stash in bags, then I just leave it until it gets close to the expiration date. In the interim, I just pump into storage bottles (#5 plastic is safe--the Medela bottles and those similac-propaganda storage bottles from the hospital in our case) and feed the baby fresh. Then when the frozen milk is close to expiring (like a month off), we use up the old stash and I freeze for a new stash. Then it's back to the bottles!

Of course, I am not yielding nearly as much volume as I used to, and we are pretty much breaking even... perhaps if your supply is really strong you might have too much surplus and this method might not work out for you. But HTH!
