Need BFing Advice

We have a stash of frozen BM that could feed a baby army. LO is still so young and I'm not mentally ready to donate, so we are thinking about getting a freezer... we're in a small space right now, so can anyone recommend a smaller portable freezer? Or any other storage ideas? Thanks!

  • I bought a chest freezer from my town's fb buy sell swap page. It's nice to have the milk out of our kitchen freezer, and it will last longer in there!
    If you don't have room for a freezer though, PPs idea of a family member's freezer is good!

  • Glad you posted about this! I've been wondering the same thing! We are running it of room our freezer.
  • Our freezer was always small for my taste even before freezing BM. We bought a small 3 cubic foot freezer from Home Depot that fits pretty well in our tiny space.

  • I promise that I am not being facetious, but I'm curious to know what you mean by "you aren't mentally ready to donate."

    I think she means that it is still so early that she worries she might regret not keeping it for her own LO.

  • To above question... I am not ready to donate yet because LO is so young, and if I get hit by a bus tomorrow or became very ill the baby would have a huge BM stash. I hope to BF for the first year and at that time I'll look forward to being able to donate and help other families
