For moms who cannot breastfeed their babies regularly, it is necessary to occasionally store breast milk for the baby to eat. Usually we use a breast pump to store milk, which requires breast milk storage bags to save it.Milk storage pouches are closely related to the baby's breastfeeding health, so when choosing breast milk storage bags, you should choose reputable brands and healthy and harmless materials.
Milk storage pouches are generally made of polyethylene, which is one of the most widely used plastics and is non-toxic and tasteless. Some breast milk bags marked with LDPE(low-density polyethylene) or LLDPE(linear low-density polyethylene) are also polyethylene, but with different density and structure, but their safety does not vary too much. Some breast milk bags are also added with PET to give them better barrier properties. These materials are fine, the key is to check whether the additives are safe.
Attention must be paid to the sealing of the pouches for breast milk: the sealing of the pouches for breast milk is most important and must not leak milk. Mothers can check for leaks by using water when purchasing.
Choose reputable brands: when buying breast milk storage products, you must choose reputable brands and products without additives and irritants to avoid leaving them in the breast milk, which can be swallowed by infants.
Please check the packaging of the breast milk storage bag carefully. Choose products with complete packaging and complete batch numbers. Unclear or incomplete printing may be counterfeit and shoddy, so be careful.
If heated breast milk has not been consumed, do not reheat it and feed it again. Because if breast milk is stored for too long, it can breed many bacteria and cause the breast milk to spoil. If the baby drinks it, it can easily cause diarrhea.
When storing breast milk, there may be a "layering" phenomenon, which is normal. Gently shake it before heating.
If there is a short-term power outage, do not open the refrigerator door during this period. After a power outage, the constant temperature environment in the refrigerator will not cause the temperature to rise rapidly, but if there is a long power outage, the breast milk may spoil, and it cannot be given to the baby.
Do not fill the storage bag for breastfeeding products to the brim. Leave at least one quarter of the space to prevent the breast milk storage bag from expanding during freezing.
Milk storage pouches are disposable products, because the molecules of the plastic will move, and their movement range is large. This will cause things to adhere to them, and these things may undergo quality changes; plastic products cannot be completely cleaned. Therefore, the safety risk of recycling is increased.
