So I am on night 4 of baby girl sleeping through! she is 11 weeks old and l decided to start putting her to bed at 8pm as she was getting grumpy and showing all the signs of being tired. She has been sleeping until between 5-6am which is amazing! However I bf so have been struggling with the adjustment :/ I have been trying to wake her at 12-2 for a feed which she is refusing so am having to get up and pump at 4am due to being so huge. I use the beemon manual pump which is fab and get about 4oz from each side. I am not planning on introducing a bottle so my question is what do I do with this milk? Should I freeze it? If so how long can you store? The bags seem very expensive so wondered if anybody has used re-usable storage? It seems such a waste to throw so much milk away :/ I would of course rather not be pumping and have tried to avoid it but I hurts so much!
Any advice more than welcome.
