I'm not sure what an "xp" pumper is, but in case I fall in that category:
I initially made 3oz bags because that is about how much she would take in a bottle at a time. Now she takes 2 morning 5oz bottles, and a smaller one in the afternoon. So, now I freeze both 5oz and whatever other size I happen to have pumped.
I'm now considering buying the covered ice cube trays to freeze some 1-oz portions to keep at daycare so they can warm up an occasional extra ounce. I was initially sending 3 5oz bottles and would have to throw out half of the afternoon one-- so I migth try sending 3oz bottle in the afternoon with a ziplock of frozen 1oz cubes they can use if she's extra hungry one day.
THough now that she goes to daycare every day, I rarely freeze-- I try to send fresh as much as possible and then rotate through 2-3 frozen bags per week to keep my stash fresh.
