I've never pumped and fed my kids the milk , always exclusively breastfed , but I am thinking I would like to have a date night with my husband and am not keen on giving my 3 month old formula - so I might try pumping .
Because I don't know how much I will be able to pump I wondered if it is okay to pump what I can over a 12 hour period and continue adding the new milk to the storage bottle in the fridge , and then freeze it .. or is this not recommended?

You can add warm milk to already cold milk as long as what you add is less than the cold amount. They recommend that if you're going to freeze it you should chill it first before putting it in the freezer. I didn't always do that and a couple of times when I thawed the milk out it seemed to have spoiled. Have fun on your night out!
