Re: What to give daycare
I use frozen milk on the first day of the week and fresh milk from the day before the rest of the week, and scald and freeze the last day of the weeks milk. Then I use the oldest frozen milk on the first day of the following week...
How long does your milk last? Mine is ok for about 36 hours before it starts to get gross, so I don't scald any milk that's not going to be frozen. If there's any left over during the day I mix it into my older daughter's milk at dinner.
I generally prepare the bottles myself, but now that my DCP and I are on the same page with how many bottles and how much, I do bring her slushy/not quite thawed milk in bags along with the bottles on Tuesdays.
