Lansinoh Bags - How to label?

Hey mamas! I just started pumping and have a question about Lansinoh bags. The instructions say to label with ballpoint pen or pencil and not a felt tip. I find the ball point and pencil extremely difficult. Does the felt tip include Sharpies? I would think they would work well and be easy. What do you use that works? I just want to make sure I'm going to use something that is fool proof. I'm pumping for a mom/baby I found on milkshare and I don't want to loose/mislabel any milk! Thanks!

I didn't know they said that, I usually use a sharpie.

I always get sharpie all over myself, and DH won't use milk if it leaks into the bowl because it "touched the fridge air" I'm going to start freezing in ice cubes and putting them in a bottle to thaw

I use a thin tipped Sharpie on these bags and so far have had no problems with smearing. would put a piece of scotch tape over my writing before I froze or refridgerated the bag if I were really concerned about the writing smearing.

If you label before you fill it with milk then it shouldn't matter what pen/marker you use. I always put the same amount in each bag (8oz) so I label them first with a sharpie and then fill all the bags after the ink has dried. I've never had any smear, and I've donated 500 oz and have more than 1500 oz in the freezer!

Thanks Mamas, I used the sharpie tonight. Made labeling painless.

Re: Lansinoh Bags - How to label?

I've tried using a ball point and it never works for me. Now I use a fine point Sharpie. I write on the bag before I fill it and have never had it smear. I don't allow time for it to dry, it seems pretty instant for me.

Re: Lansinoh Bags - How to label?

Ahhh!!! Thank you so much mamas... I've always used a ball point pen and it worked well until I got the "new thicker bags". They drive me nuts... I spend 3+ minutes per bag trying to label them I pump to donate though and was terrified of contaminating the milk with a sharpie Thanks mamas

Wait... why is it a problem to label after the bag is filled? The flap with the label is flat. I always waited until after I'd pumped so I could write the number of ounces.
