Breast Milk Storage
Is Bottle or milk bags storage better for storing breast milk in fridge? Why?
Super Mum
Have both options available too
If your fridge allow then you can use bottle if not bags really save a lot of space

VIP Member
Need to know too!
VIP Member
If your LO is latching well, there's no need to pump - unless you want to build up a stash :) However, if you do, please always do a small test batch to freeze and defrost for your LO before you start

I latched on demand when we were out
Pumping is needed if you need to build up a stash of BM, for example, if you're heading back to work and want your baby to get breastmilk. But otherwise, pumping is not needed and nursing on demand wi
