Attn: All Breastfeeding Mommies!


    
News Flash to all breastfeeding mommies!

For those of you who store your milk like this...

I have {GREAT} news for you!
This is how I store my milk now...
 
{flat as can be}

and it makes more room and it's easier to store like this...
 

And, if you are an OCD organized person {like me}...
You can get a gift bag, the size of a milk storage bag, cut a 1/2 inch slit on the bottom of one of the ends, for easy dispensing, by oldest date. {much like a Pez dispenser}
Like this...

  
(this way you put the milk in the top of the bag and the oldest is at the bottom, ready to use first)

 I hope I helped out at least one of you...I felt much smarter when I found this out!

I have a thing that compresses mine flat, but never thought about doing the gift bag w/ the hole at the bottom. Genius! I was just tossing a bunch in plastic grocery bags with dates on them.

Nice! I'll have to keep it in mind in case we ever have another little one. :) I just tried putting the newest milk at the bottom of the pile in my freezer with my other two. This seems more efficient. Although we used the gerber freezer bags for freezing not the medela.

Oh the gift bag idea is a great one-- wish I had known about that when i was nursing Brayden. We always stored it in old Pampers diapers boxes (I had TONS of frozen milk!).
