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...!!

Waaahhh.... bagus bagus bagus... semakin ramai yang ada kesedaran pasal susu ibu.... bagus berabis pump selepas 2 minggu bersalin.. supaya nda stress kemudian hari... nanti kalau suda masuk kerja, susu pula kurang, mesti stress...macam saya... hahaha.. lagi satu, hati hati ubat perancang kio.. terutama yang inject tu.. aduhhh saya suda kena hari tu... 3 bulan susu kurang tlampau
