Many years ago, before Logan was even one I heard on the radio that the corners of milk bags are one of the most dangerous things for a child to choke on. That once they are inhaled into their throat it gets stuck like a cone on the sides of the little ones throat (like a piece of balloon). And people cut the corners and often dont even know where they end up

ANyways, after hearing that I am always so cafeful about milk bags and thought I would share the random fact..... and if you think I am a freak please ignore me!!!

Sounds very believable (and scary!). Our milk comes in gallon jugs here, but I know my grandma gets hers in plastic bags.

^^I was SO confused the first time my grandma asked me to go grab a bag of milk from the fridge in the garage when they first started getting it like that.

I was confused as well.. I was totally thinking of the tiny little bags that breastmilk is stored in! Haha.. I'd love to see a picture too! We get our milk, by the gallon, in a jug.

That's exaclty how my grandma's milk is-except the labeling is on each bag and is sold by each bag.

I like it because there is SO much less waste than the jugs.

What's funny is I was having a discussion like this with some other friends on another forum about milk bags and they all swore I had 3 heads because they do not have milk bags in the states. I showed them a picture and they thought it was nasty, like it would be nasty to drink milk out of a plastic bag. What's funny is the jugs of milk down in the states are made of plastic too so what's the difference?
