Q:

Have to go out for a day
Have been feeding him breast milk only
Have bought breast pump also
Kindly suggest the storage medium and proper way of using stored milk plus if formula milk is also given which brand

Pumped breast milk should be refrigerated immediately as it's summer now. u should store it in a covered and sterilized toxinfree plastic container. U can store the milk for a week in a fridge(u can write the date on the container to avoid confusion ) . The stored milk should be warmed before it's given to baby. But once warmed u cannot refrigerate the milk again.
Nan pro and similac are the popular brands of infant formula milk. But it's best to consult with a doctor before starting formula milk.
