Best milk storage bags?
I have been using the milk storage bags by The First Years, but I have noticed that I can't always get them to seal all the way. I figured that out the hard way when my milk leaked all over the place out of my bag at work earlier this week. Since then I have been checking the seal by turning the bags upside down and I've noticed that about half the time they are not sealed as I expected them to be, always on the left side. But not only that, I can't get them to seal no matter what I do. So I end up taping the top to seal them. So now I'm wondering how long this has been a problem for me and I didn't realize it because I used to just put the bags directly into the freezer when I was home. When I thawed them, they frequently seemed bad, so I was thinking I had the lipase problem, but maybe I just have a bag sealing problem!
So, has anyone else had this kind of problem with your milk storage bags? What brands? Do you have any tips for me? And what do you think are the best brands of milk storage bags? I'm ready to switch!
