Breastmilk in Fridge then freezer


How long can I keep my expressed bm in the fridge for before I freeze it?

I am only getting a couple of oz per day (if I'm lucky) so I am storing it in the back of the fridge until I get a bottle's worth then I plan on freezing it so it could be in the fridge about 3 - 4 days.

Will this be ok?

As far as I know, that's fine. Just try to freeze as soon as you get the amount you want, or maybe freeze after every 2-3 days even if it's in smaller quantities

if you wanted, you could freeze in smaller quantities.. some people do ice cube trays with 1oz per cube then when they need it for a feed, it defrosts pretty fast and they can get the exact number of ounces they want.

But my LC said its fine to freeze after 3-5 in the fridge. She tends to be on the 'liberal' side of milk usage
