    Default freezer bag too small for a feeding

    What can I do? I stored some EBM almost 6 months ago in my deep freeze when DD was only taking 2.5 -3 ounces. Now, she takes 4. I have a few bags that I need to use because of the 6 month rule but they are only 3 ounces. I sometimes give her cereal with BM but I wouldn't use 3 ounces...that's too small to give to the DCP...what should I do with it? Can I combine one ounce of fresh BM to make it a 4 ounce bottle?

    I've been doing that and it has worked out well.

    That's what I'd do, since it's the simplest (and it's not like any of us have tons of spare time and energy).

    You cad add fresh BM to frozen Bm as long as the fresh BM does not exceed the amount of frozen BM..

    For example if you have 6 oz of frozen bm you can add any amount LESS then 5 oz.
