My assorted bottles were taking over the refrigerator and becoming an unorganized mess. I rotate the bottles and use the oldest milk first, but I had accumulated so many bottles that I was getting confused. I tend to be a few ounces short during my daily pumps, but overcompensate with my middle of the night pumps. Therefore, I need to keep around 12 oz in the fridge at any given time to add to bottles as necessary. I have recently been producing enough excess to freeze. I ended up with 58 ounces in the fridge from the past week. Sadly, I had to discard 6 oz of spoiled milk.
Step 2: Pour milk into bags. Be sure to write the date and number of ounces.
Step 3: Freeze flat.
|I froze ten 4-oz bags of milk from the past week.|
