Re: Lansinoh Bags - How to label?

I might be odd woman out here but I can get a ballpoint pen (Papermate to be exact) to work if I write on something... like the bag is on a notepad and I'm writing on the bag... so there's a cushion for the bag. If I try to write on the bag while it's just on the table, I can't get it to work.

ETA, I always write it down before filling the bag. That way if I screw up, I just get another bag and I don't have to worry about transferring the milk to another bag (did this NUMEROUS times with the Gerber bags I had for DS1)

I think Lansinoh is talking about the water soluble markers like Crayola.

Not sure how one would contaminate milk with a Sharpie, unless you write inside the bag

I have always used Sharpie and put 6 ounces in each bag for all of my milk - donated or not. I just date them and frreze them flat in the freezer.
