Storing expressed breastmilk

● Store expressed breast milk in plastic or glass containers with airtight,
sealed lids. Use BPA‐free plastic wherever possible. Label each bottle or container with the date and time.

● You can also use expressing bags. These come in one time use or reusable
options. This is becoming increasingly popular.

● In the early days freezing your milk in ice cube trays and then popping them
out as ice cubes and storing them in a snap lock bag works well. Especially
as you will only need small amounts. This prevents wastage.

● Once breastfeeding is established, store milk in amounts from around 60 ml
to 200 ml, making sure there's some empty space at the top of the bottle or
bag. Milk expands when freezing, and if the bottle/bag is full it will spill over
the top.
