When you freeze breastmilk - how many ounces do you store at a time? Do you break it down or just however much you get goes in a bag, etc.

I vary it up anywhere between 4 to 6 ounces per bag, sort of depending on how much I pump.

I don't pump that often, but I get about 3oz when I do. I use bags and they're in our deep freezer.

I never got enough to make a stash when I was pumping - I kept up with her and at one point I was a little ahead of her but the frig was always enough.

My Medela bags are marked to 5 ounces, and I put as much as the bags will hold, which is just over 5 ounces. They are $20 a box. Therefore, I put as much in each one as I can.

I freeze anywhere between 4 and 6 oz, and I keep enough in our upstairs freezer to do a couple of work days, the rest goes in the deep freeze.

I break it down into 4oz bags. When J can start tolerating BM again I know we will have to slowly add it and I don't want too much to go to waste defrosting

I have over supply, so when I pump, I put as much as I can in a bag. Usually around 6 oz I think or a little more.
