Combining breast milk?

Can I combine cold breast milk? When I pump at work and come home with cold milk (been in the fridge all day) I put it in the freezer. With each pumping I have a large bag (5-6 oz) and then 2 small bags (2 oz). Can I combine the two small bags if they are both cold (like just dump them into one bag) then put them in the freezer?

  • If they're both cold, yes.

  • I think as long as its from the same day you can combine.

    You can do different days too as long as they're the same temperature and they haven't been out too long.

    You also need to label them with the oldest date.
