Preservation of milk using a breast pump

- Nov 18, 2019-

The milk sucked by the breast pump sometimes exceeds the child's needs. At this time, it must be stored. Improper storage will have a great impact on the quality of the milk, so everyone must pay attention to:

First, the excess milk that has been taken must be refrigerated immediately.

Second, the absorbed milk can be stored in the freezer space for 24 hours and stored in the freezer for 3 weeks. This will ensure that the milk has the best quality when feeding your baby.

Third, for frozen storage, a specially designed container should be used to store the milk. Make sure the milk is kept under sterile conditions.

4. Milk can be heated like other bottled foods, but never in a microwave or boiling water for heating (this changes the composition of the milk and destroys valuable nutrients and antibodies).

5. The frozen milk is thawed in the refrigerator the night before the use, and then gradually heated in warm water. Once thawed, it should be used within 24 hours.

6. Do not refreeze the thawed milk. Do not mix fresh milk with stored milk.
