Great Breastmilk Storage Bags to Make Feeding Your Baby Even Easier
Pumping is a lot of work! Trust me, I used to pump between 5-8x per day until each of my kids were 18+ months – and this doesn’t include what I would nurse them directly! However, finding products to make this process (even a little bit) easier was like a godsend – good breastmilk storage bags included! However, when a bag leaked or wouldn’t seal properly… it pretty much would ruin my day – and is why finding a good quality bag is sooo important to me – and is also why I have come to love the bags my Unimom!

For Moms and Moms-to-be
Unimom helps to make breast feeding even easier thanks to their array of breastmilk storage bags, all of which are made of BPA, phthalates and lead free materials. Used in hospitals and approved by lactation consultants, midwives and other health professionals, these products are not only made with the highest quality standards, they are also affordable and eco-friendly.
Available in Standard, Thermal Sensor and Pump & Store varieties, all of the Breast Milk Storage Bags from Unimom make transporting, storing and freezing milk easy and more convenient. Designed to take up less space, they can be stored upright or laid flat, and are also pre-sterilized and hold up to 210 milliliters (7oz). Furthermore, they are marketed as being reusable and dishwasher safe, although I haven’t personally tried either of these scenarios, so am not quite sure I’d go along with these claims. If anything, I’d hand wash them, just to be on the safe side…
They are also available in smaller pack counts, but these are the most cost-effective sizes.
WHERE TO BUY:
Having pumped 10’s of 1,000’s of ounces of milk between my last two babies – and then storing and freezing it all to send to other families (you can read more about that, HERE) – I know firsthand what it takes to be considered a good quality milk storage bag. And no, not all bags are created equal!
Not only is it important to have one that doesn’t leak (because when one does it’s absolutely devastating!), you also want to make sure that it’s easy to store, measure and transfer the milk from pumping vessel to the bag, and then the bag to a bottle. Well thankfully with Unimom’s products, you have all of this and more!
Unimom Breast Milk Storage Bags are designed to make storing milk effortless. Their durable plastic and zip top closure helps to ensure milk won’t leak – and from all I’ve researched, I’ve never heard one that does! It also has a compact design, which is great for standing up, making it easy to store and transport. Furthermore, the measurement markers make them easy to fill and transfer from bag to bottle with less mess, and enables you to store and preserve your nutrient rich milk for as long as you can, all with peace of mind!
Best of all, Unimom has come out with a line of Thermal Sensor Breast Milk Storage Bags that have an indicator on the outside to let you know if the milk is too hot and/or too cold for baby – of if it’s just right! This is also great if you pump on the go and don’t have the means to refrigerate your milk right away, so as to know if the milk soured at any point before getting it properly chilled. Trust me, knowing you don’t have to stress about the freshness of your stored milk will save you a lot of headaches!
Oh, and Pumping straight into their Pump & Store Milk Bags is pretty great too! These self standing, leak proof, freezer safe Pump & Store Bags are designed to directly store breastmilk from your Unimom breast pump straight into these large capacity bags. Best of all, your baby can be fed directly from the bag by screwing the Unimom bottle top onto the adapter with a standard narrow neck teat inside.
