Safely Storing Your Breast Milk

Breastfeeding is the best option for feeding your baby. You may find it necessary to pump your breasts and store the milk for later feedings. This is a great option for those mothers returning to work or those who find it more convenient to feed breast milk from the bottle at times. Go to the how to breastfeed page for some tips on safe handling and storage of breast milk. There has also been recent information in the news about breast milk from online donor sites being contaminated with bacteria. Make sure you always know how the breast milk you feed your baby was handled and stored.
