I am a school teacher, and after my maternity leave was up, I needed a way to pump and store milk for longer periods of time (as in several weeks ahead of time). I am a busy person, and didn't want to have to clean bottles all the time, so the drop-ins system looked good in that regard. However, I did not want to spend a fortune on the storage disks/lids in these kits, and I figured that I would have to do this if I wanted to store the milk in the drop-in liners longer than a week. BUT I found a really good alternative that worked for me. Here's what I did: I bought 2 or 3 Playtex Breast Milk Storage Kits. I would pump directly into the drop-ins liners with my Ameda pump, put the disk/lid on the liner, **put the liner in the freezer right side up...NOT on its lid (if need be, use a spare bottle to support the liner until it freezes)**, THEN after the milk is frozen, TAKE OFF the blue disk/lid, and put the liner into a large Ziplock Freezer baggie. The disk can be washed and used again on a fresh bottle right away. The milk-filled liner is sealed in a freezer safe bag (I would date the bottom of the liner so I knew how old the milk was - always use oldest milk first!), and I would keep adding filled drop-ins until the Freezer bag was full.
Here's why this worked so well for me: When you pump into other milk storage bags, which are often much larger than one feeding (and some are really expensive!), you have to thaw out the entire bag...Read more ›
My little man is getting breastmilk only. He has not had any formula or supplement and I have been back at work for a month. I will not lie, pumping enough for his daycare feedings for an 8 hour day is a lot of work. I have to pump 16 oz per day for the four bottles he will need the next day. In the evenings when I get home I don't want to spend all my time cleaning bottles.
My son took to the playtex nursers right away and I have never had any trouble with nipple confusion. He switches easily from bottles to breast. The nursers are great because I don't have to wash the four bottles he used at daycare; just the nipples, rings, and caps. I wash the bottles every three days in the dishwasher instead but they never look like they need it. What I didn't like about the nursers was that they weren't compatible with my pump so I would pump into other bottles then pour that milk into the nursers in the evenings when I got home. Then I would have to clean 4 bottles and caps in addition to the items from daycare that needed to be washed. It seemed like a waste of time.
I like this system since you can pump right into the drop-ins liners. This saves me extra bottle clean up each evening when I get home. You can use the system in two different ways as well. You can put a liner into the ring, pump, and cap just as shown for this product; then store the whole thing on the cap in the fridge. I prefer to put a liner into the nurser bottle then pump right into that. I then cap the bottle and store it upright in the fridge or my transport cold pack. When I get home I just switch the cap for a nipple and cap and I'm ready for the next day.Read more ›
I follow the recommendation of IBCLCs to send 1-1.5 oz of pumped milk per hour we are apart. Our daycare requires that parents send in prepared bottles (regardless of whether they contain pumped milk or formula). I prefer to feed refrigerated milk as much as possible, and the volume I pump exceeds the baby's demand so I am able to freeze milk for emergencies and donation.
My pumping/storage/feeding system is pretty seamless. Every workday I set up three 4 oz Nursers, each with with a Drop In and either a Nurser nipple/ring/cap or a sealing disk from the milk storage kit.Read more ›

Our baby didn't really do very good with the system, I also wasn't a fan of having to constantly buy more liners.Published 1 month ago by Treeforge
This saved me a lot of time and effort because you can pump directly into the drop in with the adaptor and then all you have to do is put the lid on afterwards to store it.Published 3 months ago by Allison

These tended to leak over time, and the way they're designed keeps you shelling out money. The Dr. Brown's models worked much better, much more consistently, for us. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Victoria
