Hello ladies, quick question about working and storing pumped milk. I've been back at work for over 6 weeks, and during that time, I would pump and store my milk in freezer bags in the freezer of the refrigerator at work. Then I would go home and put those bags in the freezer. But I thought I read somewhere that you shouldn't do that because the milk could thaw and then I'd have to throw it out. Should I not be putting my milk directly in the freezer at work??? I've already pumped out about 200 oz since I've been back at work and I'm afraid they've gone bad and I would hate to throw it out.
Baby used to take the bottle fine until 6 wks of age then he refuses the bottle but will breastfeed fine of course. I haven't noticed any huge issues with the milk that we've thawed out from the freezer, altho occasionally we get a bag that seems to have excess lipase.
So, should I be putting the bags in the refrigerator at work and then going home and putting them in the freezer??
