I've been expressing milk and storing it for bottle feeding my baby.
However, sometimes the yield I got is less a glass bottle I used to store it(<90ml) my baby us taking around 90ml per feed & it'll last her around 2-3 hours.
As I expressed milk, there tends to be at least a few half/partial filled milk bottles.. My qn is can I mix the currently expressed (fresh)milk with the previous (refrigerated) one to make it to the right vol needed for my baby's feed?
Pls advise. Thanks so much!!

if im not wrong.. if you wanna mix them, they must be the same temperature..
First you put the fresh bottle in the fridge. after that then consolidate both refrigerated bottles together
How about mixing ebm that is expressed freshly from the same breast and then mixing the ebm fr the same breast but it was being suckled by the baby at the same time, but is cleaned with a wet tissuebefore continuing to express the milk n mixing it with themilk expressed previously..
Yes you can mix. When I started expressing my milk, Thomson Medical Center lactation consultant advise I could consolidate the milk to make up 1 feed volume. Make sure the temperature of the EMB is the same before mixing. Hope it helps.
