If you pump and store your breast milk in the fridge/freezer, how much do you put in each bag/container?

I don't any mor, but I did 2-3 oz so it wasn't wasted - bottles should never be more than 3 oz anyway. So basically each bag was one serving.

 I do 6-8oz. Enough for two 3oz bottles or two 4oz bottles

I did 4 oz when that's what he was eating, now I freeze 5 ounces b/c that's what he eats. I try to freeze it in full servings. If I don't quite pump 5, I still freeze the 4/4.5 that I get. (btw, I EP).

every time i pump i seal and freeze that bag.  i get 2-4 oz when i pump.  sometimes if i pump after a feeding i get 1 oz.  i have however, pumped 5 oz.  but DS gets about 4 oz when he does have a bottle, so i just marry bags together if i have to when i prepare the bottle.

I have 2.5oz frozen in storage bottles, I just bought storage bags though to save room. I think I will continue to freeze and store in that amount.

Whatever was pumped was stored as is. Whatever the size. Made life easier.
