Re: How should I store my breast milk, and how long will it keep?

The Bump Expert

Store your breast milk in a glass or a BPA-free plastic container that's clear in color (so you're sure it's dye-free). Plastic storage bags work too, as long as they're made for breast-milk storage (regular plastic zipper bags can be weak and leak). Freshly pumped milk can stay at room temperature for up to six hours and will keep in your fridge for up to seven days. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, you can freeze breast milk for up to three to six months in a regular freezer, or up to 12 months in a freestanding deep freezer. Slow-thaw the milk in the fridge for 12 hours, or submerge the frozen milk in a cup of warm water to speed up the thawing process. Remember, never microwave a bottle--it can remove some of the milk's nutritional value or overheat the bottle, risking a burn to baby's mouth.

Q&A: How should I store my breast milk, and how long will it keep?

I've made the mistake of thinking I could heat a bottle in the microwave for "just a few seconds" and it still created hot spots that I couldn't feel from the outside, but my little one sucked right up through the nipple even after I shook it pretty hard to prevent this. She screamed from the burnt tongue and cried and I felt so awful for being impatient. The hunger cry is better than the burnt tongue cry. Lesson learned! From then on, I just used the cup of warm water and didn't wait until the last minute to thaw the milk.
