  • Never fill bottles / bags more than ¾ full to allow space for possible expansion.
  • Label the bottle / bag with the date you expressed the milk.
  • Do not store breast milk in the refrigerator door. Store it in the lower back area of the refrigerator, where the temperature is coolest.
  • Thaw frozen breast milk in the refrigerator overnight or hold the bottle or bag under running warm water (max. 37° C).
  • Shake the bottle or bag gently to blend any fat that has separated.
  • Do not thaw frozen breast milk in a microwave oven or in a pan of boiling water (danger of burning).
