    Default Reusing Lansinoh bags

    Is this okay? I thought i had a couple left but i can't find them, and i've just pumped about 4 oz that i'd like to freeze asap. if not, i guess i'm making a trip to the store. thanks!

    I personally would not reuse a milk storage bag. Do you have a small spare bottle that you could use?

    ITA with PP. I would think the integrity of the bag would be compromised if reused.

    i've reused them and been just fine. i pump and store a lot of milk. My Mom washes the bags in hot water and gives them back. I RARELY use them, but I have and have never had any issues whatsoever.

    thanks everyone for the responses. i ended up just refrigerating the milk until i can pick up some more bags. i wanted to get the milk frozen asap to maintain as much of the nutritional integrity as possible, but i guess a few days of refrigeration wòn`t hurt it.
