Cubes vs. bags

Post by kaltaylor01 on Tue Mar 06, 2012 7:17 pm

I have the Fresh Baby breastmilk trays, and I usually freeze my milk in the trays first, and then transfer them to ziplock freezer bags and keep them in a chest freezer. Is there any advantage to using storage bags instead? What about when shipping breastmilk - is there any advantage of one over the other?

I prefer to freeze them in bags so I can get all the extra air out. I've never tried cubes first though.

Yes - I worry a little about getting the air out, as when I was using a regular freezer (connected to a fridge, but separate), I used to get ice forming on my cubes, though they seemed to be okay. Now that I'm using a deep freezer, it doesn't seem to be as much of an issue.

First off, I'm a recipient and will take milk in any shape or form. Smile I just got my first donation today with milk that had been frozen with the Fresh Baby trays. Even though I had them in a cooler with dry ice, the bag on top of the cooler started to defrost just a little bit. (We picked it up on the way home from a road trip, so maybe 4 hours in transit.) I've never had bags defrost in that short amount of time. Since they were still mostly frozen they're totally fine to put back in the freezer, but now they're going to meld together I'm sure. So maybe if your intent is to ship then bags may be a better choice?

I only store in bm bags. Freezer bags are not sterile
