Breast Milk Storage

Just thought I'd post on how I store my frozen milk.
I bought an upright freezer 6.9 cubic feet very roomy, also at the 99 cent store I bought the small containers.
I love the lansinoh breast milk storage bags. Easy to pour in and out.
When i freeze the bags I make sure there is no air inside and I lay it flat to save up on space.

If you have any questions feel free to message me.

I've been using the Target brand milk storage bags. They are about half the cost. I do the same. Squeeze out all the air and lay them flat to freeze then stand them up in a bin to save space. We have a chest freezer in our basement so I keep most of it down there and a few bags up in the kitchen fridge/freezer. I currently have over 300 ounces frozen. Thinking I could get away with skipping town for about a week :)

@tomorrow the target up and up remind me of the Nuk ones and I didn't like those. I had a couple of milk spills thinking that the bags were closed and the close zippy thingy did not close.

Skip town and get a break we deserve it.

300 oz....my problem is that I get some stored up and all of a sudden I get lazy and its faster to just put a bottle together and feed so I can get going on what I need to do. How much do you put in each bag?

Flickan I put what ever I pump in one sitting. It can very from 4 oz all the way to 12 oz. Some people don't put more than 4 oz in each but that sounds crazy to me. I don't want to waist precious bag space.  Plus as you know bags are expensive.
