    Default Air bubbles?

    My milk storage bags say that I need to remove all air to prevent freezer burn. Well, I've tried several different brands of bag, and I've never been able to remove all the air, though I do what I can to remove as much of it as possible. When frozen, I always see some sort of air bubble in the milk. Is this a problem?

    I remember having small bubbles in mine and it not being a problem.

    I actually leave a little air b/c I've had problems w/ leaky bags, and it seems to happen when there's not enough room in the bag (d/t expansion during freezing). If your freezer auto-defrosts (as most these days do), then it shouldn't be too much of a problem.
