I know what you’re thinking, “another breastfeeding post?!” I told ya’ll, I’m totally hot on breastfeeding right now! I think I still feel so blessed that I was able to overcome so many obstacles and make it happen, and I just 1,000,000% am obsessed with the bonding time that Anissa and I get when we breastfeed, that I don’t know if I’ll ever stop 😉 Ok ok, obviously kidding!
Today, I want to share an awesome product and brand with you fellow breastfeeders, or those of you looking for a new mama gift… it’s a good one! For anyone who has ever breastfed, you know that your pumped milk is your liquid gold… whether it’s chillin’ in the fridge (haha) or frozen in the freezer, your stash is worth everything. And right now, my stash, small but mighty, is a mess. Check it out for yourself.
There are bags everywhere along the inside of the freezer, and I don’t know (easily, without writing dates and checking each bag) which one is newest or oldest or which I should use next. Plus, it’s just a mess and taking up valuable room in the freezer.
So what’s a girl to do with her milk in this dilemma? If you had Fairhaven Health‘s amazing product, the Milkies Freeze, you’d never have to worry about it (collective “Ah ha, so that’s where she’s going with this!”)
The Milkies Freeze is an awesome organizational system for your freezer which frees up space and utilizes a”first in, first out” system so you’re always giving baby the right milk. Plus, it’s super easy to use! First, you collect your liquid gold in any storage bag, and place the bag on the metal quick freeze tray on top.
Once the milk is frozen, slip the bag into the storage system through the slot at the top, and the bag will fall to the bottom of the container. Then, just repeat every time you have a new bag of milk to store. The Milkies Freeze can store up to 60 oz. of breast milk! When you need to thaw a bag of breast milk to feed to your little one, pull a bag out from the bottom of the Freeze – that way you are sure to use the oldest milk first!
Like I mentioned earlier, the awesome Milkies Freeze is made by Fairhaven Health, a company that specializes in fertility, pregnancy and nursing. Here’s a little more about this awesome company straight from them.

This is so cool! I would’ve loved this when I was nursing.

I think this is great and very helpful. I wasn’t able to breastfeed with my 1st and was only to do it a short time with my 2nd. This is great information though

I will definitely be sharing this with new mom friends!

I really wish that I had this when I was pumping for my youngest son. I ended up using a box inside my deep freezer.
