    Default can I mix milk?

    Ok, this might be a dumb question, but can I mix two days worth of milk? I only pump once a day and get only 1-2 oz. If the milk from yesterday has been in the fridge can I mix it with today`s and freeze them together? Sorry, pumping illiterate...

    yes, you can definitely mix the two! just make sure the ebm that you are adding to the previously chilled milk has been chilled, too (e.g, don't mix warm with milk chilled milk). hth!

    I only pump about the same amount. When I researched the same question, I learned that the milk should be the same temperature before you mix them together. Then you can freeze them. You can also add a little fresh milk onto frozen milk, but not so much that it thaws the frozen.
