Storing Expressed Breast Milk

Written by Samantha Sorden

Breast milk is the best food you can feed your baby; it contains key nutrients that help your baby fight diseases, enhance cognitive and behavioral development, and keep your baby healthy. Safely storing expressed breast milk allows you to continue feeding your baby on demand and ensures that your baby receives proper nourishment when you are away.
