I've been using Lansinoh ones up to now but they often seem to get holes in and leak. Are there any that are better?

I used Boots ones though both of my babies, never had an issue with leaking.

Don't overfill
Buy cheap ones (hone bargains or tesco?) and double bag!
I put say 4 bags into a Tupperware box to protect them from knocks in freezer

That's a good idea sleepdodger. I hadn't even thought of other things in the freezer causing the bags to tear! Doh confused

i use reusable bottles - fit straight onto pump
can be washed, sterilised and reused - cost less than £1 a bottle and no risk of leaks.
got mine off ebay

I came on to say Lansinoh - never leaked - I let all the air out and put them on a specific shelf.

I had this problem and tried several types of bags, in the end I decided the trick was to be really careful with them, especially once frozen!!

I use the medela ones and they haven't leaked

I came on to say Lansinoh too!

I kept mine in a plastic tub in the freezer to protect them and never had any leaks.

No lid just stopped them sliding around and getting damaged.

I've used the Medela bags with no problems

I have used Medela for 4 babies - never had a problem.

Plastic tub/tupperware sounds like a good solution, or double bagging. I will try both. I wish I could be careful but we have quite a small freezer, which we share with our lodger too, so even though I try to keep a designated area for milk they do get knocked about by other stuff. Reusable bottles won't work as they'd take up too much space. I like the fact that the bags store flat.

Oh, and I meant to say, thanks for all the ideas grin

Ahh your last sentence re storing them flat is the issue, need to be upright I think?
