Oh that sounds like a great idea!! I've been looking into other ways to store besides storage bags. Not a big fan of those. I'm definitely looking into this. Thanks
Good idea and I like the idea of storing in glass vs plastic.
What about zip lock storage baggies? Im not sure if the sandwich size would be okay in the frezzer, but it would allow you to store without taking up a lot of room.
That's a great idea. I can't believe I never thought of it before.
With the ziploc bags I'd be worried about them busting which is my concern with the plastic ones designed for breast milk. And I hate the idea of throwing all those bags away. Glass is sturdier, reuseable, and less money in the long run.

Love the mason jar idea. but i wonder wo having put any thought into it yet, would it be more difficult and more of a hassle to thaw with the mason jars? I never froze before what little I pumped went in fridge and got used within 3 days. My freezer is very small :-( like sometimes hard to get a weeks worth of frozen stuff into it small. But ive always wondered how well the bags work? I do like that they have the oz markers on them however :-)
You could do mason jars get the small ones and de-thaw by putting in the fridge, warm up by putting in warm water of a slow cooker (much gentler way of heating up). I don't know if that would work for breast milk but my sister-in-law used it to heat up formula.
To thaw you can thaw in the fridge over night or in warm water. I don't intend to freeze much.
I get WIC n they provided the bags for me but when it comes to thawing it out the bags r the easiest cuz u just stick them under hot water n they thaw really quick especially when i got a demanding bb on ur hands!
My concern would be that glass gets brittle when frozen and heated repeatedly & I would worry about eventual shattering which can be dangerous
