    Default What do you freeze your milk in?

    Just before bub's birth (now 10 months) I bought a packet of Dr Brown's breastmilk storage bags and I think they're fab because they never leak.

    But I only have one left. Lately I express only about once a month or twice at most... so I don't want to buy a whole pack of these bags (which are fairly pricey) when I'm going to start to wean bub in a couple of months.

    Can you just use regular snap lock bags? Does anyone do this?

    Sorry if my question sounds very stupid. Just want to know what others do.

    Not sure if regular snap lock bags are sterile. I use the swisspers brand. Think they were only about $5 and they haven't leaked yet.

    I've heard about these but cant find in the supermarket or chemist. Where can I buy them from? I've used the avent storage cups but think a bag might take up less room in my freezer?

    I tipped milk into ice cube trays, and then into snap-bags with the date written on it once they were frozen. I did this for 1.5 years, never had an issue.

    Glad bags here too. A few have had a couple of drops coming out of the bottom corner when I've put the milk in, but I just position those ones in the freezer so that the milk is falling towards the zip lock edge.
