    Default Ok to pump into cooled milk?

    I'm pumping after feedings to increase supply, so I'm just getting small amounts. Is it ok to keep the bottles/flanges set up in the fridge and pump into tthem throughout the day? Or is it unsafe to pump warm milk into cold milk? If so, what do you do to keep it easy? Thanks!

    Totally fine. I did this all the time (or combined freshly pumped with cooled).

    Yes! Totally fine. I get the big, cheap 9oz gerber bottles to pump into throughout the day. I just put the whole set up in the fridge and get them out to pump when I'm ready! The larger bottle means I'm switching bottles less often.
