Thursday, July 16, 2009In an ideal world, none of us would ever have to pick up a breast pump or express milk. Babies would always get it straight from the tap. In the real world, due to things like travel, latch issues, jobs and the need for temporary escape...babies often end up drinking expressed and stored breast milk.
Now, any mom who has ever pumped milk knows how much work it is. The last thing we want to have happen to that hard earned milk is to have it go bad, or worse yet, have the breast milk storage bag in the freezer spring a leak.
That's why breast milk storage bags were one of those things I never skimped on. I tried out quite a few and one of my favorites were the ones from Lansinoh. (I'm a fairly big Lansinoh fan anyway, having been won over early on in the hospital with Lansinoh brand lanolin.)
Back in the days when I was exclusively pumping for Elnora and saving milk for the milk bank, I used to go through breast milk storage bags like crazy. I tried a ton of different brands and my favorite by far were the Lansinoh Breastmilk Storage Bags.
They hold six ounces, which is on the high end of the scale space wise and they've got a great bag shape that let's you freeze them flat, even if they're pretty full. (Tip: If you lay your breastmilk bags flat on their side when you put them in the freezer, they free that way and you can stack them more easily.)
