  • I used bags, and I always just put them into a glass of very warm tap water for a few minutes.

  • submerge the bag/bottle of breastmilk in a cup of hot water for a few minutes. It's best to wait until 3-4 weeks when introducing the bottle in case of nipple confusion. I found it best to use a bottle that looked similar to my breast for my children. Good luck and remember baby might not get it the first , second or even third try.

  • Look at the bottom of this chart for thawing guidelines. This chart is very useful to print out and put on the fridge.

  • the same way as you should heat up a bottle put the bag in a pot of simmering water until thawed and to desired temp.
