Breastmilk storage question

Is it okay to store pumped milk in the refrigerator for a few hours until I have pumped enough to store in the freezer after a few pumping sessions? I try to pump when she is sleeping maybe 2-3 times a day My daughter is 5 weeks old EBF and I'm working to build my supply and try to even out the size of my breasts. Thanks.

Yup- you can store in fridge for about 5 days before needing to either feed it or freeze it.

I was taught that breastmilk can only be added together if it's at the same temperature. I often combine milk from more than one session to freeze. I just refrigerate each batch separately and combine them to freeze when they are equally cold. (I hope I explained that clearly...)
