Can I mix my milk?

I pump every time after I breastfeed my little man. Can I mix the milk that I pump? I'm storing it and the storage bags are pretty big. I don't want to put just two oz of milk in one great big bag.

  • tough Question, ide say if its from the same day it should be okay. But I wouldnt mix one day of breastmilk with the next days. also it depends on how often you are feeding him by the bottle. Go to this site it might help.

  • Oh yeah, you can always add. Just date it for the date you put the first couple ounces in, and you can just pull it out of the freezer and add, and stick it back in. I did that all the time.

  • nichole- it's fine, really! Both my sister's are nurses and they did it too. Trust me- your milk is your milk. It really makes no difference.

  • Yes, you can. It might be better to only store two or three ounces in one bag, depending on how much your LO eats in one sitting.
