When storing breast milk in storage bags, do you prefer to freeze them as a flat bag or standing up? If flat bag, when defrosting, what method do you take on to ensure bag doesn't leak?
freeze it flat bag and keep it upright.

When is the good time to bottle feed breast milk? Will LO reject breast feeding after that?
Mine was 1 month

Experts suggest waiting til your baby is at least a month old and when breastfeeding is well established before introducing a bottle.
I started formula 3rd months but every night I feed Brest milk too
I introduced it when my boy's 6 weeks old, sufficient time to build up BM supply. Ensure that the teat of the bottle is wide (NUK, Hegen) to minimize nipple confusion.

It should be ok to have some spotting resembling the end of your period which is like dark brown. I had it after I stopped lochia at about week 7 too. Should be like the residual waste material. I
