I read a couple of things the other day saying its fine to add just expressed milk to chilled EBM. Ill see if i can find the link. I'm not game to do it myself, I chill both lots then combine.

In regards to the fat layer, if you add the second lot of milk as soon as its cold there wouldnt be much left behind. Just swirl the milk around first to dissolve the fat.

Why are you combining it? Is it to freeze? I suggest you freeze in smaller batches anyway. I suggest freezing in 30 - 50ml lots so that you don't need to defrost a lot only to have bubs refuse it, or refuse it after half of the amount. My dd drinks 90 - 160ml in a pre-bed full feed now (she's 10.5 months), but previously it was anywhere from 30 - 100ml.

I'm combining what I express so that I don't have several 200ml containers sitting in the fridge with only 40 or so mls each in them. I just combine what I express in a day, with a new container for each day.

Why not have just two containers on the go during the day, one chilled for the day and one with fresh expressed milk chilling, then add and wash the container before expressing again, that way you wont make your baby sick.
