Re: Mixing Milk from Different Days
You can mix milk from different days. Allow it to cool completely before mixing, and make sure it is labeled with the date of the oldest milk in the bottle.
Can I mix milk from various days? For example, I have 5 oz freezer bags. But if I only pump 3 oz today, can I put it in the fridge, pump 2 oz tomorrow, and then mix them together to freeze? Or does milk from each day need to be stored separately?
When using the stored milk, you may want your caregivers to offer portions that are smaller than 5 oz, and feed the baby more frequently. That way there's less likely to be unfinished milk in the bottle, which may need to be dumped. Also, many breastfed babies prefer to eat small amounts more often, rather than a huge amount infrequently.
Yes, go right ahead. It shouldn't matter at all.
And for eating, can you mix milk from different days into one bottle? Someone told me you couldn't, but I'm wondering why. Seems like it wouldn't matter.
