Hi! Does anyobe use the target brand milk storage bags? Do you like them?

If not, what do you use?

Im looking for a lower cost alternative to medela.

  • I use them. Very occasional leaks, but so far better than the Lansinoh ones.

  • I use the NUK bags and love them as well. No leaks and thick plastic. I'll have to try the Target brand when I run out.
  • I like nuk

  • I usually use the Honey Suckle brand ones which I like. However, I got a breast pump through my insurance a couple of months ago, and it came with a large supply of bags (Ameda brand I think), and I can three refills on the bags. Just wanted to add that in case you might also be able to get them through your insurance.

  • I use lansinoh and target - have had maybe 3 leaks with lansinoh, none with target. That's over almost four months. I always defrost the milk bag in a jug or something just in case.

  • I love the Target brand bags as well.  It's nice to be able to freeze my milk flat.  Only thing I dislike is it's hard to right on the label with a pen so I use a fine point sharpie.  

  • I also use lansinoh but I consider them expensive... we don't have target in here, otherwise I would definitely try.

  • Target UP & UP > Lanisoh


  • I've used Medea, lanisoh, and target. Target is by far my favorite. I write on mine with a sharpie across the main part of the bag, I don't bother with the area at the top with the lines- it's easier to read for me and daycare that way.

    I've only used medela (got them really cheap) but I've recently bought the target ones cause I've heard really good things. My best friend loves them.
