Milk Storage Bag

After giving birth, every mother will be experiencing the process of searching for the best breast milk storage method to store the milk for the baby. Especially for the first time mother, there is more research and effort that needs to be put in while comparing relatively with the mothers who already have several children. The mothers may feel more at ease knowing that when they are away, the baby can still benefit from the breast milk. A fantastic approach to make sure the baby continues to receive all the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients from the breast milk is to pump it and store it. Breast milk storage bags are a simple and space-saving method for the mothers to store the breast milk. 

There are two ways of storing the freshly expressed breast milk, such as using a bottle or milk storage bag to store the breast milk. Most mothers will be familiar with the storing method of using a milk bottle. However, milk storage bags are more convenient for mothers to use. Since milk storage bags are freezer-proof, ready to use, and simple to label, thus, breast milk storage bags are ideal for freezing the expressed breast milk. To keep track of the dates, simply fill out the panel on the front of the bag. If mothers intend to store breast milk in the refrigerator for one or two days, it is best to store it in bottles. On the other hand, if the mother intends to freeze breast milk for long-term storage, it is best to store it in milk storage bags. It is because the milk storage bag saves more space in the freezer. To summarise, both storage methods have advantages and disadvantages. Nevertheless, while choosing the bottle or storage bag to store the breast milk, the mother should also pick the material that is made of BPA free plastic. 

Benefits of choosing milk storage bag to store breastmilk

Hygienic & convenient solution

To ensure that stored expressed breast milk is safe for the baby to drink, maintain good hygiene. Before touching the milk storage bag, thoroughly wash the hands with soap and drinking-quality water, then dry them with a fresh towel or a single-use paper towel. Avoid touching the inside of the bag. In terms of hygiene, breast milk storage bags should only be used once. Never reuse the same bag, as this can lead to cross-contamination.

Easy to transport

Milk storage bags are lightweight and easy to transport, making them a great solution for breastfeeding mothers who need to pump and store milk while they are away from home.

Accurate measurement

Many milk storage bags have pre-printed measurement markings, which help mothers to measure the amount of milk that needs to be stored accurately. This is helpful when mommies are trying to track how much milk that baby is consuming or when mommies need to combine different bags of milk. Furthermore, breast milk, like all liquids, expands as it freezes, so don't fill the milk storage bags past the clearly marked mark.
