    Default Loss of nutritional value

    Does frozen breast milk loose nutrients? I was told this and I don't know how true it is.

    If it is stored properly it shouldn't. I don't freeze milk so I'm not sure on the proper storage but you should be able to find it somewhere on this site.

    I think I heard it might lose some when you reheat it, but keep this in mind: Milk banks pastureize the milk they get from donors to kill bacteria and viruses. Even after pastureization, the milk still has many of it's immunological properties and is still hands down MUCH better for baby nutrionally than any formula you can get on the market.
