Is it true that fresh milk is better than frozen? For daycare I send the milk I pumped the previous day (on Monday it is Friday's milk). Every now and then I have extra which I freeze. I have a pretty big freezer stash - probably 200 ounces or so. The frozen milk only gets used when my hubby and I have a date night or if I am out running errands away from the baby too long. I have been thinking that I should send the frozen milk to daycare before it expires but in my head I think that fresh is best and so I would rather my baby have fresh milk whenever possible. is this silly? Other moms at my daycare provide frozen milk only and the caregivers will prepare bottles as needed.
