Lansinoh Breastmilk Storage Bags Review



Lansinoh Breastmilk Storage Bags ReviewAs a new mom, I am certainly learning a lot about a lot. Breastfeeding didn’t come easy but it’s going much better now and our little one is doing great. I purchased a Medela Pump in Style Backpack to help me ensure our baby always has what she needs, even if someone else has her for a few hours. I have tried storing the pumped breast milk in sterilized BPA-free bottles as well as breast milk storage bags. I received a box of 25 Lansinoh Breast Milk Storage Bags for the purpose of this review.

The Lansinoh Breast Milk Storage Bags impressed me from the first use. I like the sturdy yet flexible BPA-free plastic bags and found them especially easy to fill, seal, and freeze. I did notice if I dropped a bag once frozen, or if one fell out of the freezer, sometimes the milk would leak when thawing or I might notice an “off” odor. This happened once in a while, but I thought it might be worth mentioning.

I found it insanely easy to get the air out of the bags before freezing. These milk storage bags have a double zipper, which allows you to be very sure your milk is safe and secure, separate from everything else you have in your freezer, and protected from leaking everywhere.

The bags hold up to six ounces, making them ideal for a single pumping session, as well as for infants of different ages. These bags are also rated as the #1 storage bag for breastfeeding needs, and are marketed as the strongest bag available. Each bag has an outer tab that allows you to write the date and time you pumped as well as the name and number of ounces in the bag.

Lansinoh Breast Milk Storage Bags are free standing and can be easily stored in your freezer either standing up or placed flat. The bags come in a tissue-pack style dispenser and they are all pre-sterilized. Thorough instructions make it easy for even the newest mom (like me) to get it right on the first try – no fuss!

I am very pleased with my experience so far. We haven’t had to defrost any of the milk stored in the Lansinoh bags just yet – right now we are working on building up our supply until we have to leave the baby with a relative for a few hours. However, the entire experience so far has been flawless, and I expect I will continue to purchase these bags unless we opt for storing in breast milk storage bottles instead. (Our lactation consultant at the hospital urged us to use bottles rather than bags, but that came with a lot of extra work and we are still trying to find out if there is a legitimate need to do so.)

These milk storage bags are recyclable as well.

You can buy Lansinoh Breast Milk Storage Bags at your favorite baby store or baby department of various large retailers, as well as online at Amazon.com. Depending on the number of bags in the package, Lansinoh Bags retail for about $8 to $20 per pack. You might also find coupons available to reduce your cost.
