    Default freezing in bags or bottles

    From a couple of hospital stints I have alot of the little medela bottles. Does anyone know what freezes better the bags or bottles. Just wondering. Thank you.

    i like to use the bottles to pump into and store fresh milk to bring to daycare. when i freeze i freeze into bags, you can lay them flat and they take up very little space that way.

    You can use either but I have always used the bags. As PP said they take up less space in the freezer. But another factor is they defrost easier too. If you are just using warm water and want it quickly the bottles take forever to come to temp.

    It also depends on how much you plan to keep in the freezer. If you're only looking to store a few bottles' worth, then there's probably no point in buying bags. However, if you're planning to build a stash, I'd definitely go for bags.
