How to Store Breast Milk

When storing breast milk, you really have two options. You can either store in bags or in bottles. Personally, I have loved using Medela pump & save bags for my breast milk. These are great because they’re actually quite simple to pour into and won’t leak all over the place! Make sure you’ve washed your hands well, grab your breast milk storage bag or breast milk storage container, and carefully label it with today’s date. This will help when identifying which milks are good to keep or which are expired. Pour your milk into the open bag and close the top. Store the bag in the freezer in an upright position to avoid leaking. Now you’re all set to store your breast milk for later!
