Breast milk storage: Do's and don'tsBreast milk storage can be confusing. Follow these practical tips on choosing containers, freezing breast milk, thawing breast milk and more.By Mayo Clinic Staff


Breast Feeding Accessories Breast feeding accessories help prolong the life of your breast pump and increase feeding efficiency. Choose from an assortment of shields, milk storage bags, bottles, containers, nursing pads, power adapters & home alcohol tests that ensure proper usage of your pump and quality of milk. Reliable brand names are available including Lansinoh®, Medela® and Avent®.


If you're breast-feeding and going back to work or looking for more flexibility, you're probably considering using a breast pump. Once you start pumping, it's important to know how to safely store your expressed milk. Consider these do's and don'ts for breast milk storage.


Fill individual containers with the milk your baby will need for one feeding. You might start with 2 to 4 ounces (59 to 118 milliliters), and then adjust as needed. Also consider storing smaller portions — 1 to 2 ounces (30 to 59 milliliters) — for unexpected situations or delays in regular feedings. Breast milk expands as it freezes, so don't fill containers to the brim.


Using waterproof labels and ink, label each container with the date you expressed the breast milk. If you're storing expressed milk at your baby's child care facility, add your baby's name to the label. Place the containers in the back of the refrigerator or freezer, where the temperature is the coolest. If you don't have access to a refrigerator or freezer, store the milk temporarily in an insulated cooler.

Before expressing or handling breast milk, wash your hands with soap and water. Then store the expressed milk in a clean, capped glass or hard plastic, BPA-free container. You can also use special plastic bags designed for milk collection and storage.


However, breast milk storage bags might tear, leak and become contaminated more easily than hard-sided containers. For extra protection, place the bags in a hard plastic food storage container with a tightly sealed lid.

These bottles are sturdy, clear, and easy to read. I am not too happy with the lids that have the loose cover in the middle. I would prefer to have the lid affixed to the rim.

Other than the loose lids, I am completely satisfied with this product!
