I am wanting to pump to have extra bm in the freezer just in case (I also love that bm can help clear up babe's acne, heal her little scratches on her face, etc.).<br><br>
I have not decided on how we'll feed the babe the ebm (it's early) but am considering either the bornfree plastic or any type of glass bottles (with the bisphenol-a issues)... haven't decided on the nipple issue yet but I'm most concerned about the storage issue.<br><br>
So, would you still store ebm in the little plastic bm bags or in glass bottles or...? What other issues am I needing to consider before choosing bottles, bags or other?<br><br>
Thanks for your wisdom, mammas!

I use the Lansinoh bags and also milkmate bottles.<br>
I like that the Milkmate bottles fit directly onto my pump and there's no need to transfer the milk when freezing. But I like the lansiloh bags because excess air can be squeezed out and this reduces the chance of freezer burn.<br><br>
I also have the Born Free bottles, both the plastic and glass. I prefer the plastic ones.

I use bags. I can fit a heckava lot more in my freezer than bottles. Also, I don't have that many bottles.<br><br>
But I am the head cow in a mini dairy farm here, so for casual use, a couple of bottles are probably fine!<br><br>
(And if you do use bags, lay them FLAT to freeze, then once they are frozen sheets of milk, they can be stored in many tight spots. I stand them up in ice cube bins, loaf pans, little boxes I steal from DD, whatever I can fit them in.)
