Breast Milk Storage Bags

Breast milk storage bags are essential tools for nursing mothers. Breast milk storage bags allows the mothers to be away from their babies and at the same time alleviate their worry that their babies are not getting enough food.

Their worries are now over because they can pump their breast milk into these breast milk storage bags. There are even breast milk storage bags that are directly connected to the breast pump. They can put these breast milk storage bags in the freezer or in the refrigerator after filling them with milk.

It is preferred that after pumping breast milk in the breast milk storage bag to store it in the freezer. Life is full of unexpected things, and babies should have adequate supply of milk especially if their mothers have to leave them for a while.

Better label the breast milk storage bag of the date as to when breast milk is pumped into it.

Labeling is very necessary because it leads to proper storage of the breast milk storage bags. You should always be informed how fresh the milk is before feeding it to your baby.

At room temperature, breast milk that is stored in breast milks storage bag can be consumed within 4 to 8 hours. Refrigerated milk inside a breast milk storage bag, usually lasts from 3 days to a week.

If you have an idea that the milk stored in a breast milk storage bag won't be consumed within the time frame, then the next step is to place them inside the freezer. It is advisable to consume it within 3 to 4 months though and it is important to note that once the frozen milk is thawed, do not refreeze it.

When storing breast milk in the freezer, put only small amounts in your breast milk storage bags. Once the milk inside the breast milk storage bag is thawed, you cannot refreeze it and if the baby cannot consume all the milk, then it would all just go to waste. Smaller portions means less wasted milk. You can also use sterilized baby jars as a replacement for breast milk storage bags.
