Hello Mummies I have a question how do we store out Breastmilk in two door fridge freezer. 1) Do we usually fill up the storage bag till full with milk then take out from the fridge thaw within 24hr to consume(afraid that the balance milk will go wasted cause is not the exact amout bby drinking) OR We filled up all e bag eg to 80ml easier for me as baby drink that amount just thaw and ready to drink no need keep pouring to make right amount but problem is as weeks go by baby intake will increase and all the frozen will be at 80ml 2)i read up that chilled milk that kept (3-8days) is better than those frozen milk that we stored Could mummies advice me the best way to store the milk Thank You!

I store in bags of 200ml. My LO currently drinks 150ml, so I will mix 100ml of FBM with 50ml of EBM. So, 1 bag is good for 2 feeds. If you're planning to store in exact amounts maybe you want to put in bags of 80ml then later slowly increasing the amount because their intake will also increase as they grow. With anything frozen, I think it does lose a little of its nutritional value over time.
