MrsDusso :  I only ever stored a max of 4oz, because that’s the most she’d drink at once. But, I do highly recommend freezing some bags with smaller portions as well (1 or 2 oz) so you have the option to top the baby off without thawing out a whole new 8oz.

I’d do 4 oz bags and some 1-2 oz “snack” bags.

I also put 3-4 oz in each bag, later on I think max of 5 oz when he was older. I laid them flat and put them in freezer bins. When I pumped at work I let them cool completely and then combined milk from the day.

I usually stored between 3-5 oz per bag.

It’s fine to combine milk from different pump sessions as long as you let it cool first.
