    I live in the middle of nowhere too...

    Our walmart has breast milk storage bags in the baby dept. They aren't my fav kind, but will do in a pinch.


    You could go on-line...

    or ask them if they could order some for you.
    they at least should have some gerber bags.
    Push come to shove I think I would put it into regular freezer bags.
    They wouldn't fit into a bottle like the others but it would work.
    you could freeze the milk in an ice cube tray and then after it's frozen move it to a freezer bag!

    heres the milk storage like to the LLL I web site

    I use the lansinoh bags, which will work great in the freezer too. Just make sure that all the air is out. I sometimes have trouble finding them at walmart, but most of the time they have them.

    They sell the gerber bags and lasinoh bags at my Wal-Mart

    Although, I live in more of a sub-urban area, so they might have more stock? There are two Wal-Marts 10 minutes from each other, and another 25 minutes away

    I would order them online - I know you can order them from Target.com. I've bought lots of stuff online from Target and have never had any problems.

    I can't in good conscious give Walmart my business - I'd have a hard time if that was the only close shopping option!
