  • I would be afraid they would leak after all that work. I used Playtex nurser bags with just a few that leaked. Store them in a container so other things in your fridge/freezer don't puncture them.

  • they sell the breast milk bags at walmart and they are not too much, i would just store it in a bottle until you can get some.

  • Yes you can, but put the baggies into another container til frozen (if you're freezing) or to contain any leaks. It won't last as long in one of those baggies either, especially in the freezer.

  • I suppose you can, but I wouldn't. I agree that they would likely leak, and they're not freezer safe.
