cool idea. I have the smallest freezer ever so anything to help with space would be great! (we won’t even be able to stand a bag like that up in our freezer!!)

Mrs. DG – that is a great idea.  I’ll have to look into that…

Wow that’s great.  Now, I just hope I remember to do this when I have my own kids.

Another tip for this:

Cut apart pieces of cardboard from an old 12 pack of soda to place between the breastmilk bags.  I find that the bags tend to freeze together, so having a cardboard divider keeps them separate and easy to pull out.

ETA: I saw another DIY where someone used an old soda 12 pack cardboard box to store breastmilk like a tray.  It was cute, she decorated it with some fabric.  Our fridge is a side-by-side, so our freezer won’t hold upright bags, we have to have things that are short and long, so the soda box worked better for us.  🙂

Thank you for sharing DG! I literally just deleted the milk organizer off of my registry, it just sounds stupid now and way less efficent.
