Storing my EBM

A couple of mommas asked me how do I store my Expressed Breast Milk (EBM).

So here how I store it.

Firstly, pump.

Pumping takes about the same time as breastfeeding, but with practice and a good pump, it can be as little as 10 to 15 minutes.

Then, store it.

I sometimes use bottle to store at the fridge, not freezer, because I malas to thaw it...

But storing at back of refrigerator EBM only best up to 3 days.
Here I'm using Mom's Precious 5oz storage bottle.

I always freeze it, because it can last up to 3 months.


I use YHAB Breastmilk storage bag... most economical I can find so far, its Pre-sterilized and BPA- free.


Here how the storage bag looks like....can store up to 8oz.


Mark the date and time you prepared the breast milk.


I usually store up to each feeding per bag, not all that you pump...ebm can only be freeze & thaw one time...and cannot be refreeze... and storage bag must be dispose after use...


Then ikat.


I use a tie band for wires to ikat the storage bags...this can be found at Daiso.


This is how tie bands look like.


and you are done...!!!

Happy Breastfeeding mommas...!!
