Storing breast milk


I need to stock up on frozen breast milk.
Up to now I have used hard plastic containers to store it in, but it is getting expensive and difficult to store.
I am now considering storing the milk in small ziplock bags....

For both of these I was wondering whether there is a health risk involved... Considering BPA and all that??

And i have been sterilizing the hard plastic containers, but that will not be all to possible for the ziplock bags, is that a problem?

My little one is now just over 5 months old!

Thank you so much for your time and patience with all the questions!

This is a very good question.Ziploc bags are BPA free so you can safely use them.New, unused Ziploc bags should be reasonably clean and safe for your baby who is now 5 months old.
