One of my girlfriends took some pictures for me of her milk storage method for me to share with you all. Many moms utilize this method once their babies are taking larger quantities of milk.
She lays each breastmilk storage bag individually inside a box of baby wipes. The reason she uses the baby wipes box is to give them a flat surface which to be stored in while they are freezing.
See how thin they end up being once frozen?
She dates and times them. This is much more detailed and precise than my method; however, many people believe the composition of milk adjusts throughout the day. I know of a few women who label if they had caffeine in the past 24 hours as well, since some babies have an extreme sensitivity to caffeine. Anyhow, since Little Miss A was in nursery school, I couldn't specify which bottles were given when, so time of day wasn't a huge factor for me. Also, when I stored my milk, I would mix the entire day's milk together and separate it out at the end of the day.
Here's her freezer
When we received donor milk during the period of time my supply decreased due to thrush, my donor used the baggie method as well. I stacked them in my freezer sideways. I cannot find a picture to show you, but it looked like a file cabinet when I opened the top.
Do you guys have any other methods of breast milk storage? What do you do?
