    Frozen breastmilk storage / bags

    I thought i had share my little tip regarding storage of frozen breastmilk. At first, i use Lansinoh breastmilk storage bags. Not the most expensive ones, but surely not the cheapest. But about 10% of those had leakage by the side the moment i pour BM in.

    Feeling very annoyed and also i wanted to store them in smaller volume to avoid wastage i resort to using ice cubes tray which is not so easy to pop out everytime.

    I now finally found the Brother Max Food Cubes in Bumps to Babes to work. The frozen BM cubes popped out very easily and i just put them in a zip lock bag, labelling the volume.

    Any other mummies have tips to share?

    My wife started off with Medella bags. But they're a bit on the expensive side. She's currently using Boots bags.

    Medella bags cost over HK$6 per 5oz bag.
    Boots bags cost less than HK$2 per 7oz bag.

    See here to buy:

    @ JayJay

    Thanks for sharing. I got my Lansinoh bags from the website you provide too. How's Boots bags? Any leaking at all?

    @ charade

    I normally thaw it by putting it in the non-freeze compartment, then i pour into the bottle and warm it for feeding. I think to thaw frozen BM takes very long?

    No leaks. In fact, we're heading to the store this weekend to pick up some more because they're so good!

    Oh... I haven't actually tried thawing directly from the freezer yet. You're right - would make sense to thaw in fridge first.
