The benefits of feeding expressed breast milk
When you’re breastfeeding and pumping milk for your baby, there’ll be times when you need to store it to use later; for example, if you’re breastfeeding and working fulltime, going out for an evening, or simply want a stock of expressed breast milk for another caregiver to feed to your baby while you take a break. In addition, if you have an oversupply of breast milk it’s a good idea to store it safely rather than wasting it – expressed breast milk retains most of its health-giving benefits, so it’s better for your baby than formula.
How to store breast milk: A convenient, hygienic solution
If you’re expressing your milk straight into bottles, transferring it into Medela breast milk storage bags for storage and transport makes sense. These stand up upright for easy handling, yet can lie flat once sealed, for storage in the fridge, plus they can be frozen, too. Milk storage bags also make life easier later on, when you want to defrost and warm your frozen breast milk to feed to your baby. If you want to express your milk directly into milk storage bags, take a look at our Pump & save bags.
How to warm breast milk
Your baby may prefer your expressed milk if it’s at body temperature, because it seems more like milk that’s come directly from the breast. It’s easy to warm your milk in a Medela breast milk storage bag: either place it into a bowl of warm water or a bottle warmer, or run it under a warm (maximum of 37 °C or 98.6 °F, which is body temperature) tap.
