I am nursing my newborn son and I also have a toddler. I thought about pumping milk for my toddler to drink the next day cold out of a cup, for the nutritional/health benefits. Does anyone else do this?

I plan to pump some milk for both my 3.5 yo and a small freezer supply.

I did for my 2.5 yr old every day.
I made her waffles with it too.

I do for my 4yo sometimes. If he seems to be getting sick or if I am a little engorged on one side. He loves it!!!

Sometimes for my 4.5 yo DD. She likes it a lot and says it tastes like melted ice cream.
