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!

Many ways of doing it. U can do like what the walker ladies suggest or what some do is like the fm way. - store in 60ml, then just feed one/2 bags. So for ur case will be bags of 80. I dun have that much milk and sometimes milk strike and start solids, growth spurts etc, makes the drinking a bit erratic sometimes. So I have all these ebm of various amounts (sometimes u manage to pump more or less) and then will just combine and give baby to what I think he will drink. I try to match the closest (round down) and then if he is sill hungry too up w fm(so that no need waste bm, and also provided u are ok w fm) Chilled milk is definitely better than frozen milk (duration that can be kept in fridge various greatly from different websites and practices)
