breastmilk bottle?

is there a certain bottle you have to use to store breastmilk when you pump and freeze them? when i look online at bottles they call them Breastmilk bottles. I was just wondering if there is a difference. Sorry if i sound like a total idiot

  • I have a medela pump so I use medela bottles and bags that attach to the pump and go right in the freezer. They are great. I have used them for both children!
