    Default Freezer Burn?

    I'm trying to get a jump-start on building a supply before returning to work in about 6 weeks. I store in Avent semi-disposable containers. I'm concerned that because there is some air between the top of the milk and the lid that the milk will get freezer burn. Anyone have experience with this?

    hi, there...
    before i had to throw away my freezer stash (all 30 5-oz bottles) due to thrush, i froze EBM in either the medela or evenflo milk storage containers. i don't know about freezer burn, but i know you shouldn't fill the container all the way to the top to allow the milk to expand when it freezes. as long as the avent semi-disposable containers can be frozen, i think you should be fine!
