Default storing breastmilk

Hi. I pumped some breastmilk before, and want to keep it in the fridge
and add more milk to it in the morning and then freeze it. I was just
wondering, I just put it in Avent breastmilk freezer bags, and put it
in the Avent Bottle holder and in the fridge. I didnīt take the air
out, that is just for freezing isnīt it. I just put the lid on it. Is
this an ok way to store the breastmilk? Then Iīm going to add more to
it in the morning and then use the bags to freeze in. How does this
sound, ok?

I dont think you should be adding breast milk to milk that is already in the
fridge. I think if you want to freeze it you should do so soon after
pumping it. When I pumped (long time ago it seems) I just put the milk in
the freezer bags and that was it. No bottle holder or nothing. I dont know
if its okay to store milk like that.

It should be fine. You'll want to cool the new milk you pump before
adding it to the milk currently in your fridge. And you need to date
the milk with the date of the oldest milk so you know when it
is no longer good to use. I used to store my milk in the Gerber
zip lock storage bags in 2-5 ounce portions.

Here's a summary of milk storage advice:
