Breastfeeding means that you are your baby's ultimate source of nourishment. You'll need to supply your little one with your precious liquid gold even when you're back at work or just out and about. To do that, you need to express milk using a breast pump (you can use your hands, too!) and breast milk storage bags.
Sure, another option aside from bags are reusable milk containers, but they tend to take up so much space in the refrigerator or freezer. Disposable bags save space and will save you the hassle of washing and sterilizing containers. But if you think you can use a resealable sandwich bag or any other plastic bag, no!
Why breast milk storage bags and not just any other bag or container?
Breast milk storage bags should be sterile and BPA-free. You want your breast milk intact and lessen the chances of contamination.
Most breast milk storage bag brands have built-in volume indicators and labels, so you'd just have to fill in the blanks. It makes your life easier.
Breast milk storage bags should also be able to withstand freezing, thawing, and warming milk. You want to make sure that the bag will not leak. Every drop counts.
In our Facebook group, Smart Parenting Village, pregnant and moms continuously ask for recommendations on many preggy and baby essentials, among many others related topics. Many nursing moms shared which brand of breast milk bag worked for them.
