For nursing mothers who work, exclusive breastfeeding can be difficult. This is why pumping &storing breast milk for use at a later time is a good idea.

However, there are dos & don'ts for breast milk storage so please read this #thread to find out.

1. What kind of container should you use to store expressed breast milk?

Before expressing or handling breast milk, wash your hands with soap and water. Then store the expressed milk in a clean, capped glass or hard plastic, BPA-free container.
BPA stands for bisphenol A, a chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins since the 1960s.

Some research has raised health concerns about BPA because it can seep into food or beverages from BPA-made containers.

You don't want your baby feeding from that.
