    Default nestle good start glass bottles ?

    Can I use the 3 oz glass bottles from nestle good start to store bm in the freezer ? I cant see why it can be a problem if I dont heat if and only put warm (not hot) milk in them ....

    and then I bag it with a ziploc.

    Good idea ?

    Sure, you can safely store breastmilk in glass. I might be wrong but I think you need to leave a little room at the top for the milk to expand when it freezes.

    with glass, it's also especially important to make sure you thaw the milk in the refrigerator before warming so that the glass doesn't break/crack (usually takes about 12 hours to thaw in the fridge I think).
