Breastfeeding

Keeping breast best

The advice regarding storage of breast milk is that it can be refrigerated at 3.9 degrees Celsius for as long as five to eight days. Most of the research to support this has been based on the risk of bacterial build up rather than the overall quality of the milk. To examine the question of how the nutritional value of breast milk is maintained, researchers took breast milk samples collected with a breast pump, one month after giving birth. The milk samples were stored at 3.9 degrees Celsius and tested after 24, 46, 72 and 96 hours. Over that four day period there was almost no change in the composition of the milk including bacterial levels, acidity, immune system protein levels, healthy fatty acids and protein. It is best to store your milk in dry glass containers or BPA-free plastic containers clearly labelled: “not for use in coffee!”Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
