I wanted to share what i found. I have a medela pump i will use when baby is born and i have been slowly gathering supplies. I keep hearing differing views of bags for storage so i figured ill just get bottles. But those things are expensive. So i checked out ebay and found a wholeseller. I got medela sealed bottles dirt cheap!


Go on ebay and search seller itsy.baby. I got 8oz and 5oz bottles. Just thought id pass along my find to you ladies :)

You'll never need 8 oz bottles...and i prefer bags for faster thawing. But, i always appreciate a good deal. :)

Targets brand of bags are the best! And ditto to what sewing mama said!

Yep, the 5 oz. will be MORE than plenty for an EBF baby. 

 And if you plan on freezing, you *might* want bags for ease of flat storage.  Here's my FAVORITE bag:

I needed the 8oz bottles with my first! Sometimes I would pump more than 5oz a boob. I was really glad to have the bigger bottles. Some mornings they were a must.

We didn't need them for feeding tho.

Same here! At my peak I pumped 14oz in a sitting. I took the big bottles to work to store my milk/bring it home.

I forgot some moms can pump ridiculous amounts... I've never even seen that much milk at once! Haha.

I'm that mom : ) I have 5 oz bottles on my pump and I have to use a measuring cup and empty them halfway though.  I usually get 16 oz per session. In fact I'm pumping right now and 

Thats from halfway through - 11 oz.

Lol. I know when I pumped with dd, I'd get almost 4 Oz from one side using a manual so for me the bigger bottles will be good for combining. I know obviously I won't need the big ones right away but I want to keep bottles around so hubby can have a chance to feed the baby and bond the way I did with my babies. He will work long days so a night time feeding or two from him will be nice. I will just pump when he is doing those so I don't miss a beat.
