    Default Best milk storage bags? No leaks!

    Hi all, does anyone know which storage bags don't leak? I'm using the Lansinoh bags but have read on Amazon reviews that these bags leak! I haven't defrosted any bags yet but thinking of switching to another brand. Would hate to waste any precious milk when I finally go back to work...

    Also, if anyone has any tips on best way to freeze/store or other products they're using, pls let me know!

    I've used Medela and Lansinoh bags and neither have leaked for me.

    I only use Lansinoh. My milk had problems (freezer burn, smelled sour) with Medela and Ameda bags. The double zipper seems to prevent leaks.

    i really liked lansinoh, no leaks, but i've also heard recommendations for honeysuckle.

    I use Medela bags and have never had a leak per se, though a couple of times I have spilled milk because I thought the zipper was completely closed and it wasn't.

    My milk DOES usually taste soapy after being defrosted (even though it's been scalded first), but I thought that was due to my lipase issue, not the bags I use.

    Honeysuckle. Hands down. Too bad I didn't find them until I wasn't going through 250+ a month.
