I have a breast milk question. when pumping and storing
when pumping and storing ( freezing) milk to give to a premature baby at a later date, which type of milk do you give the baby first when they start taking oral feeds? the oldest first or the freshly pumped of the day.? byw.. this was a 24 wk premie to start.
Freshly pumped will suit the baby
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
I will prefer the freshly pumped milk for the baby as it has all the right nutrients required at the age. The frozen milk can be kept aside for days when freshly pumped milk is not enough.
Hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
