New to this whole thing and I am just barely starting to freeze some extra meager supply and have a question. When I want to freeze breastmilk, should I do it immediately after pumping or can you put the extra milk in the fridge in a bottle from different pumping sessions (possibly different days) for a few days and at the end of day 3 or whatever freeze whatever is extra? Ideally I would like to put all the milk into bottles and after a couple of days freeze it if I have extra since I am still at a stage where I do not know if I will have extra or not. Is it not sanitary to do this?
Also when you freeze BM, do you put the storage bags in another container/put them in another ziplock baggie or do you place them directly into the freezer? I would like to use the least amount of storage when storing them as I do not have a lot of freezer space.
Thanks in advance!
