I'm back to work full time. I keep up with fresh milk in the fridge for my daughter, so I pump into bottles and store in the fridge in 2-3 oz portions. But I will get a bit ahead of her and need to freeze some milk since it won't be used in time. What is the best way to bag the milk that's been in the fridge without loosing all the good stuff? It seems like all the good stuff in the milk sticks to the side of the bottle when I transport it. Any tips? I've tried a few things, but there's gotta be a better way.
On a side note... My daughter who was born 6 weeks early, spent 3 weeks in the NICU, dropped so much weight so fast it was terrifying, had to get donor milk, and had a heck of a time learning to eat has been exclusively breast fed since we got home. Getting my milk in was a challenge! I could have easily given up a few times. But I'm so glad I didn't! She is 2 1/2 months and has almost doubled her birth weight. She was in the 73rd percentile for weight and 85th for height at her 2 month checkup on the regular spectrum, not the preemie! It's AMAZING the power of mamas milk!
