New to pumping — The Bump

New to pumping

I've just started trying to pump. Right now, I'm only getting about 1/2 oz to 1 ounce per pumping session. I'm not sure how to store that amount. Is it ok to store it in the refrigerator and add to it as I pump more so I can make a bottle of 3 oz? Not sure what to do!

  • You can store it in the fridge and combine with milk you pump later, but you aren't supposed to mix warm with cold.  So next time you pump, refrigerate that in a separate container til it is chilled, then combine for a full bottle or freeze.  Count the expiration date based on the date of the oldest milk.
  • is a great source of information for storing milk, and also increasing your supply if you're looking to get more output when you pump
