    Default supply storing

    I have a simple question...I usually pump a few ounces in the morning for any emergency situations. Now I have about 5 bottles pumped at different days in the fridge.
    First Question: can I combine them all and freeze in one container? Also can I pump today lets say 2 oz and combine it with yesterday's 3oz and leave in fridge for 5-7 days then freeze? NOt sure how combining BM and freezing works.
    Thanks.

    You can combine from different pumping sessions. As far as how long they're good, though, I'd go from the oldest date. So, if you have some you pumped yesterday, and some today, I'd go 5-7 days from yesterday's date, KWIM? You can also combine to freeze, but I wouldn't freeze large amounts together. It takes more time to thaw. If you want to combine, I'd freeze first, then combine once they're thawed. Just my 2 cents.
