    I used zip lock bags but after one split and leaked all over the bench I double bagged. It seems you can cry over spilt milk! I was not good at expressing and could only manage to express 1/3 of the feeds so I was devastated at losing a bag!

    I used the advent storage cups. I just washed and sterilized with the bottles. They stack well and I am still using them now for freezing meals.

I'm not 100% sure about breast milk specific bags, but unless they are individually packaged, then sterility is lost as soon as you open the box. I can't justify paying that much for breast milk specific ones. I'm a cheap a$$, lol.
    They're zipped close and have a seal that you tear off, so the inside does stay sterile.

    I agree with the swispers bags. The double snap lock is handy and they are reasonably priced.

    I used to use ziplock bags - good quality ones - and never had any issues. I would lay them flat to freeze.

    The storage container/bag just needs to be clean - don't stress about it being 'sterile', because sterility is almost impossible to achieve at home, whether an item is sealed or not.

    I use to freeze milk in avent bottles. Never had any issues and you can wash and reuse.
