Milk Storage Guidelines

Basically, milk that is "leftover" can probably be saved for the next feeding, but the jury is out. Unfortunately there is no rule as to how much you need for a given time period. John sometimes takes more than 4oz in a feeding, other times only wants an ounce or two. I *personally* will refrigerate extra milk and use it for the next feeding. And, honestly, we don't usually heat the bottles, just make sure they are equivalent to "room temp" before feeding.

Good luck and I hope that helps. I mainly want to say that I have UTMOST RESPECT for you for breastfeeding your babies. You are a goddess!
