The benefits of feeding expressed breast milk When you’re breastfeeding and pumping milk for your baby, there’ll be times when you need to store it to use later; for example, if you’re breastfeeding and working fulltime, going out for an evening, or simply want a stock of expressed breast milk for another caregiver to feed to your baby while you take a break. In addition, if you have an oversupply of breast milk it’s a good idea to store it safely rather than wasting it – expressed breast milk retains most of its health-giving benefits, so it’s better for your baby than formula. How to store breast milk: A convenient, hygienic solution If you’re expressing your milk straight into bottles, transferring it into Medela breast milk storage bags for storage and transport makes sense. These stand up upright for easy handling, yet can lie flat once sealed, for storage in the fridge, plus they can be frozen, too. Milk storage bags also make life easier later on, when you want to defrost and warm your frozen breast milk to feed to your baby. If you want to express your milk directly into milk storage bags, take a look at our Pump & Save bags. Peace of mind on the move Medela breast milk storage bags come with a handy transport pouch that keeps them together and organised without taking up lots of space. The pouch is also printed with clear, illustrated instructions, so you can feel confident when using the bags on the go. There’s no need to worry about leaks, either, as each breast milk bag has double zip protection and double walls, and the seams are heat sealed to prevent tearing, splitting or cracking. While expressed breast milk remains safe at room temperature for up to four hours,1 if you have to transport it for longer periods of up to eight hours you’ll need to keep the milk storage bags in a cooler bag with ice packs. For more details, read our article on travelling and pumping. Hygiene when using breast milk storage bags Good hygiene is vital to ensure stored expressed breast milk is safe for your baby to drink. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and drinking-quality water, then dry them with a fresh towel or a single-use paper towel, before touching the milk storage bag. Try not to touch the inside of the bag. On the subject of hygiene, Medela breast milk storage bags are only meant to be used once. Don’t ever reuse the same bag, as this could cause cross-contamination. The good news is that, as they come in packs of 25 or 50, you’ll have plenty to keep you going. Freezing expressed breast milk Breast milk storage bags are ideal for freezing your expressed breast milk, as they’re freezer-proof, ready to use and easy to label – simply fill in the panel on the front of the bag to keep track of the dates. Remember that, like all liquids, breast milk expands as it freezes, so don’t fill the milk storage bags past the 180 ml mark, which is clearly labelled. Thanks to their flat shape, the bags are easy to slip into the freezer – and quick to defrost, too. Thawing frozen breast milk To avoid losing all the vitamins, minerals and other important ingredients in your breast milk, always thaw your frozen breast milk storage bag inside the fridge. This will take around eight hours, so make sure you factor the time into your preparations. Don’t try to speed things up by heating a bag in the microwave or putting it in a pan of boiling water, as these methods can cause ‘hot spots’ in the milk that are a scalding risk. How to warm breast milk Your baby may prefer your expressed milk if it’s at body temperature, because it seems more like milk that’s come directly from the breast. It’s easy to warm your milk in a Medela breast milk storage bag: either place it into a bowl of warm water or a bottle warmer, or run it under a warm (maximum of 37 °C or 98.6 °F, which is body temperature) tap.
- No leaks with double zip protection and double walls

More milk and comfort, as tested with mums1 The new PersonalFit Flex™ breast shield was developed with the help of a team of research scientists and breastfeeding mums. It’s designed to easily adapt to your shape, and encourages your milk flow by helping prevent compression of the milk ducts. This makes it easier for every mum to find the pumping position that’s most comfortable for her. The result? More comfortable, more efficient expression, shaped around you.Our research scientists tested the PersonalFit Flex™ breast shield in four clinical studies with breastfeeding mums. Across more than 1,000 pumping sessions, they proved it delivered more comfort and efficiency. Like every Medela product, our Flex™ breast pumps are designed to make breastfeeding easier, so you can feed your baby with your amazing milk for longer.

At a glance: Easy Expression Bustier
Fabric and Care:
- Strapless design with no-slip support keeps bustier reliably in place
- Reinforced openings hold breast shields securely
- Front zip and hook make it quick and easy to put on and take off
- Designed to fit your Medela double electric breast pump
What is a pumping bra? A pumping bra (also known as a hands-free bra) holds your breast shields during expressing, leaving your hands free to operate the controls. This also means you can get on with other things while pumping – ideal for busy mums! Some pumping bras have straps, but these can make them tricky to put on in a hurry. This is why the Medela Easy Expression Bustier has a strapless design, with no-slip support to keep it reliably in place. Benefits of double pumping with the Easy Expression Bustier Double pumping is a particularly good option if you need to express frequently, because it allows you to collect more milk – 18% on average1 – than pumping from each breast in turn. Another bonus is the milk collected has a higher energy content than milk obtained by single pumping.1 If you’re using a Medela double electric breast pump, the Easy Expression Bustier has been specially designed to fit it. How to use the Medela Easy Expression Bustier There are four simple steps to using your Easy Expression Bustier:
• Hook: Fasten the bustier at the front.
• Zip: Zip it up from the bottom.
• Insert: Place a breast shield on each breast beneath the bustier, with your nipples centred in the tunnels.
• Attach: Finally, attach a connector to each breast shield.
It’s as easy as that – now you’re ready for hands-free pumping! Will my breast shields stay in place when pumping hands-free? Don’t worry, the breast shield openings are reinforced to hold them securely. What’s more, the Easy Expression Bustier’s no-slip support keeps it reliably in place without straps to dig in or cause aching shoulders. And the stretch material doesn’t just help keep your breast shields in position, it also adapts to your changing body for a great fit whatever your shape. Taking care of your Easy Expression Bustier The Easy Expression Bustier is machine washable. Simply pop in a delicate-garment bag and put through a 60°C (140 °F) cycle. The bag will prevent it getting tangled up with other clothes, and it’s best to avoid washing the bustier with items that have Velcro fastenings for the same reason! Full washing and colour-care instructions are given on the packaging. All women are different and Medela embraces this diversity. In case you cannot find your size outlined on our size chart, we advise you to try the closest Medela size to your measurement. Finding the right size
- 85% nylon, 15% spandex/elastane
