Human Milk Storage Guideline Tips

Collection and Storage

  • Wash your hands. Wash bottles and pumping supplies in hot soapy water or in the dishwasher*.
  • Use glass, BPA-free hard plastic containers, or breast milk storage bags for safe storage.Label all milk with baby’s name, date and time.
  • Keep milk cool in an insulated cooler bag with frozen ice packs while transporting.
  • Freeze milk in small quantities to eliminate waste. For healthy full-term babies, milk can be stored in 2-4 ounce quantities. For premature babies, milk can be stored in smaller quantities. Leave an inch or so of space at the top of the container because milk will expand as it freezes.
  • Store milk in the back of the freezer; don’t store on shelves or freezer door.
  • Avoid adding warm or fresh milk to already cooled or frozen milk. Chill freshly pumped milk before adding it to frozen milk.

*Check manufacturer information on whether pump parts can be washed in the dishwasher.

Thawing and Warming Human Milk

  • Use oldest milk first. First in, first out.
  • Human milk can be served room temperature or cold
  • Gently swirl the milk to mix it, it is normal for human milk to separate.
  • Milk may be thawed in several ways (1) in the refrigerator overnight, (2) under running warm water (3) in a container of warm water.
  • Never microwave breast milk.
  • Thawed milk should be used within 2 hours or placed in the refrigerator.
  • Thawed milk can remain in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
  • Discard unused milk left in a bottle within 2 hours after feeding.
  • Never refreeze thawed human milk.
