What Do I Need To Collect and Store My Breastmilk?

Collect your breastmilk in a clean container.

Plastic or glass containers that close tightly are best for storing your breastmilk.

You may use plastic bags that are made for freezing breastmilk.

Before you begin, wash the containers and pump parts with very hot, soapy water.  Rinse well and air dry.
