Breast milk is a fresh, living food that, in addition to its nutritional content, has many antioxidant, antibacterial, probiotic and immune-boosting properties for your baby.

As for specific advice on breast milk storage

  1. Usually at room temperature (around 25°C), breast milk can be stored for about 4 hours. If the baby can drink milk within 4 hours, it can be stored at room temperature.
  2. Keep it in an ice pack, and store fresh breast milk in a silicone breast milk storage bag for up to 24 hours.
  3. In the refrigerated state, studies have shown that breast milk can be stored for 48-72 hours at around 4°C. However, if the refrigerator is turned on and off, the temperature will be unstable, so it is best not to exceed 12-24 hours.
  4. Under the freezing condition of minus 18 ℃, breast milk can be stored for 3-6 months.
  5. Frozen at low temperature (minus 20°C), breast milk can be stored for 6-12 months, but it is best to use frozen breast milk within 6 months.
  6. Try to place it as close to the inside of the refrigerator as possible, not near the door. Because during the repeated opening and closing of the door, temperature fluctuations will affect the quality of frozen breast milk.

The refrigerator also needs to meet the following conditions

  1. Need to maintain a constant low temperature: excessive temperature fluctuations will affect the taste and quality of breast milk;
  2. There is a closed sterile space: it is directly mixed with other ingredients in the refrigerator, which is prone to odors and even bacterial contamination.
