    Default Best bags for storing?

    Hi, I still don't need to pump but getting ready for when I do. With my first baby I used the Gerber storage bags but I am having a hard time finding them where I live now. What brands of bags do people use that would recommend?

    Thanks!

    Lansinoh bags are double sealed and thick.

    I second the Lansinoh bags. I tried the Gerber bags, and was very disappointed in them. I love that the Lansinoh are double sealed, and they really do stand up on their own...

    I third the Lansinoh bags. They're great, never had any problems with them.

    Has anyone tried the new Medela bags? the ones you can attach directly to the pump? Wondering if they really work..

    I have tried the Medela bags, and they're good, but I found the price to be too much when you can just buy the Lansinoh bags and they're just as good. The only upside is you can attatch them to the pump, but I didn't really like doing that, because I don't get enough to bag out of just one side. HTH!

    I 4th and 5th the Laniosh bags! I have tried the Medela bags and while you "can" connect them to the pump I made such a mess doing so every time I tried. Nothing is more upsetting than ending up with 10oz of milk in your lap!

    I'm a Medela CSF bag user, but as soon as I'm through with what I already own, I'm switching to the Lanisoh bags. The CSF bags have worked fine, but I agree with pp--they're awkward when used pumping directly into them, and they're harder to close, I think. Good, thick bags, though!

    Love the Lansinoh bags, too! They store flat in the freezer.
    for 1-1/2 years...and still going!
