work, I've been busy. People told me to pump, and now my freezer is being taken over by bags of breast milk.
I'm confused about how the frozen/fresh thing will work though. As I understand it, Mason will eat what I pump the day before, supplemented with frozen milk if necessary. But with different rules regarding the shelf lives of fresh and frozen milk, how will I keep things straight? The frozen milk must be used within 24 hours of defrosting, so he should drink the frozen bottle first each day, which means I should label it accordingly, correct? And then if he doesn't get to all the fresh milk, it can carry over until the next day?
Is it possible to have too much frozen milk?
And how much will he eat each day anyway?
Please share any tips you have for how to make the pumping, storing, freezing, defrosting, and serving process a little easier. I'm overwhelmed. And I'm worried about giving my baby food poisoning (is this possible?) with old milk.
