    do you have a breastmilk "stash"?

    Advertisements
    mine is taking over my freezer. i was originally going back to work 4 weeks ago so i started pumping and storing right away. i pump 2-3x a day just so when i do go back to work i have an easy time pumping. to date, i've gone through 3.5 boxes of 25 bags with 4-5 oz per bag... i'm afraid i'll never use up the older stuff

    It's good for 6 months in the back of the freezer. I had a huge stash when I breast feed, each bag had 6oz in it and I had over 50 of them.
    Siggy under construction!!!

    it's so funny because we don't use the stash... so it just keeps getting bigger. when she eats, it's generally from me. she's maybe had 6 bottles of BM since she was born LOL

    I keep saying I'm going to start one but really I'm just to lazy to pump.

    pumping is definitely not easy. i usually only pump 5 oz at a time because i get lazy. i'll alternate between which boob i do the 3 oz on and which i do the 2 on... though there have been times when i'm really engorged and can do like 5 on each boob. lol.

    there have been a few times that i've pumped when i can only do like an ounce or so, but that's usually an indication i need to drink more water.

    it's definitely not easy though
