Ok, I did check out the FAQ link that I had seen posted on a different thread about how to store human milk, but I still had a question.
On the FAQ page it says...
Is this in regards to freezing human milk only? :shrugQuote:
Disposable bottle liners or plastic bags are not recommended. With these, the risk of contamination is greater. Bags are less durable and tend to leak, and some types of plastic may destroy nutrients in milk.
Here is my delimma. Tomorrow I am going to go visit my mother and will most likely be there for several hours, and I am bringing my baby (of course!). I don't know that I will be able to nurse while I am there since there will be some other people there as well, so I am planning on bringing some milk that I have pumped. Now, I only have two little bottles that actually fit on my pump. I was hoping to bring at least three bottles in case I need them all. The other type of bottles that I have are Playtex Nursers that have the drop-in liners. If I were to dump one of the already pumped bottles of milk (pumped today) that has been in the fridge into one of the Playtex Nurser bottles with a liner, and save it for tomorrow, would that be ok? Or is that still not recommended, since it would then be in a bottle liner.
I did read somewhere in a book (I think) that said storing milk in the fridge with the nipple on is not recommended either. Because I don't have just a lid for the Playtex Nurser bottles, I'd have to put a nipple on it, and then a cap over the nipple. I'm also wondering why it says it's not store bottles in the fridge with nipples on them? Only thing I could think of was, the nipple possibly absorbing the odors in the fridge? Maybe there are other reasons.
