I saw bmsg website they even say Singapore 2 door freezer compartment recommended storage is 2 months and not LLL's 3 months.
I that day go and tune the freezer compartment setting to almost max cold. Hahaha. My fridge at home didn't keep anything now at freezer. Purely for ebm. Thumbs up for being only lady of the house not cooking yet
Actually what is the cheapest way to store ebm? Bags , tray, or bottles?
Oh I thought glass bottles is the safest compared to plastic bottles. It doesn't crack. I ve been reusing my glass bottles since mid June. I feel safer using glass bottles. I do not fill it up completely as advised by hubby due to you have mentioned expansion. Each bottle can hold up to approximately 80-90ml. Just nice cos my baby drinks that amount currently.
I did use breast milk bags but since I can't pump alot, I can't make the bags stand upright. Anyways want to make life easier for mum in law by using bottles only.
But to me the least work needed to sterilise, store milk in them and reheat for baby to drink is glass bottles. Then you can just buy standard ring n teat n feed your baby straightaway.

I use nanny milk storage bag, i think it save space for the fridge. I use 2 compartment fridge, so the frozen milk is on top. I always store the midnight pump as there will be a lot compare to the day (skip 1 pump session).
My baby still have not't go back to normal vol yet, now stop at 80ml per feed, we tried to increase the feeding session, like 2 hour interval.. so total vol per day is around 600ml, which i think is at the low side..
But she is happy, poo, and pee pee, so i think it is fine?
If I count 80ml per feed and I'm feeding her 7 sessions is only 560ml.
Ivy your baby drinks 80ml n 7 sessions? My fat boy about 7 weeksdrink 100ml n 8-9 times a day.. I also hope I can start storing breast milk in freezer like you guys!!
