Kiinde Twist - how many bags a day for 3mth old?

I bought the Kiinde Twist breastmilk storage system and was hoping someone could shed light on how many bags are used daily for a 3 mth old (when i'll be returning to work). Each bag holds 6oz-can I warm up the bag and keep the unused portion in the bag refrigerated for later in the day? Just need to know how many bags to buy so Im prepared!

  • Couldn't tell, are those bags reuable or single use? Obviously that will impact how many you will potentially use.

    Here's a link to info on breastmilk storage; has a link on the page itself regarding reusing breastmilk (which is as close of an answer to your question of saving unused milk that I saw): www.kellymom.com/bf/pumpingmoms/milkstorage/milkstorage/

    on moible so cannot see, did you already have baby? If not yet, would order a small amount now & more later on once you've use the system and know that it works for you (pumping/nursing does not work for everyone & I know that my initial plan for storage didn't work the way I thought. I now do the Medela vials - is not perfect but works for me. Didn't start using those until around 9mo though). To help you estimate amount needed: www kellymom.com/bf/pumpingmoms/pumping/milkcalc/

    I know a mom who'd pump 18 plus ounces in a session (she was exclusivly pumping due to latch issues), I am more of a 3 to 6 ounce person and have been all along. Even at over a year, my daughter has yet to drink more than 5 ounces at a time (yet eats just fine). We did best with 2 or 5 ounce bottles - didn't need bigger. Know other babies that were downing 8 ounce bottles &still wanting more. Every child is different.

    Have you checked out the breastfeeding board, or KellyMom? Those resources I found useful when I was in the early stages. In terms of being prepared, would say being flexible and investing a minimal amount of $ into the system until you know it works for you.
