Just after suggestions for breastmilk storage bags?
Have read some a very thin so can often leak etc etc.
Come at me with your tips and brands and where you got them.

Cheap, never had one break. Got then at my local chemist. Occasionally saw them at a supermarket IIRC.

Pigeon brand were my least fave of the ones I tried. But even then, never had one leak or break.
Also- I always froze laying flat and stored in a hard nappy wipes box (huggies or treasures do them)- with the oldest at the front, freshest at the back.

Swisspers are great and well priced.
My favourite are Lansinoh brand, I bought big boxes of 100 bags from ebay and they worked out to be cheaper than Swisspers when I bought them this way (but they are ridiculously expensive from the chemist!)

Cheap, thick and easy to get.
Write date with a Niko pen.
Stored flat like Lou-bags said, in a plastic container in the freezer

I exclusively pumped so used somewhere around 1500 bags, I couldn’t afford to use proper breastmilk bags so I used home brand snap lock bags. Yes on the rare occasion one snagged and got tiny little holes so leaked but overall it was a pretty good way of doing it.

Another vote for swispers. Definitely the cheapest of the chemist stocked ones. I could only find them at chemist warehouse though. No leaking or breaking over two years of pumping.

I've always just used sandwich zip lock bags... only ever had one leak slightly from a corner as it defrosted but given almost exclusively pumped for 12 months that's a pretty darn good success rate!

I used the Avent cups. Stackable, reusable, etc. Then wash and sterilize as per normal.
I used them for food purées as the kids got older.
We did exactly this! Brilliant as they can be reused all the time. DS is 14 months and we still use them for purees/ sauces that he will eat. There are pretty much always some in the freezer door at our place. They are a good size for snacks now, too
We use disposable nappies so I'm not having a go at anyone, but I felt like this was one way in which I could reuse and not feel wasteful with no extra effort on my part. I also was.less likely to spill a cup than a bag of milk, but maybe that's just me lol.
