hi mommies...I have two months old baby nd he is on bf only..my question is that can I give him breast milk by spoon if I m not there for feeding..nd if yes then how to store breast milk nd how to give the baby?

Breast milk can be stored at room temp for 6 hours and is fridge for 24 hours . If refrigerated , thaw the milk before giving it to the baby . Don't ever directly heat the breast milk . If you give it either by spoon or bottle

Why Not given directly feed from your breast....it's good if baby suck by his own feeding with your breast milk......I would recommend to you dear feed only to your baby breastmilk..baby also save by any infection

thanks Neha Gupta and Shrishti Bansal

Mention Not Dee Ask any Query Any time..!

u can use breast pump to store milk in d feeding bottle n it can b stored for 6 hrs

hii dipika... yes you can express your milk and keep.. and can feed through spoon later... at room temperature (around 26-27) you can store milk for 4 hours... you can store in a sterilized feeding bottle or even pouches are available fir storing milk.
you can also store in the refrigerator for longer duration... just keep in mind to feed milk when it comes to room temp..  don't heat the milk directly.. you can keep the milk container in a utensil with warm water...or take the milk out before so that it comes to room temp and then feed.
