Breast Milk Storage Tips to Save You Tons of Space

Editor's Note: I'm not going to lie. I wish I had read this post by Grace at What If No One's Watching before I started breastfeeding, pumping and storing milk. I made all of the same mistakes she dictates in her post, but never found a storage solution that didn't take up a ton of room in our freezers. If you're looking for a breast milk storage solution, you absolutely have to read her post! -Jenna
While at least two dozen people have given me positioning and latch advice, I don't think anybody every told me how to store breast milk. At least, not until I had been doing it wrong for a while. And so, in the interest of hopefully helping someone out there who is similarly ignorant, I'm going to tell you a couple of things about breast milk storage.
(Please note that this advice all assumes you have adequate supply to stockpile milk.)
The big thing is this: frozen milk takes up a lot of space.
