When I started pumping when Carina was 3 weeks old, I poured the milk in the bags when I was done, and then lay them flat in the freezer. Once frozen, I put the bags upright in The First Years Milk Storage Organizer that I have, but you could use this nifty gift bag trick someone told me about, too.
|I think I need to get another one (or three) of the organizers. This |
isn't even all of my milk. One of the shelves on the door is full.
The bag of peas are holding in all of the milk on that bottom
shelf behind it, too. Uggh. Freezer storage fail.
The storage bags are a bit expensive because they are pre-sterilized, BPA-free, and have a color change locking mechanism which ensures that the bags are sealed. I don't mind paying a little extra for these features. I just discovered that they are part of Amazon's Subscribe & Save program so you can get a 75 pack of the bags for just over $10!
What do you use to store your milk? How do you store it?
