I've read its ok to freeze b milk in ice cube/ food trays, if i do this how is it best to steralise the container, i usually use a microwave one?
does anyone do this rather than strage bags i just figured it would be cheaper in long run....

How about these pots. I'm sure you can sterilse them.

I used the bigger Avent semi-disposable pots. I used them for BM and then for weaning. 6 years on they are still very useful for freezing child size portions of stuff. Easy to label with dates on the lid with a marker.
I think they come in either 6 or 8 oz.

I have heard of people freezing them in ice-trays before and then transferring to a bag. I believe every cube is about 1oz so you can just pick out how many cubes you want for a feed. Not done it myself.

Just wash it in really hot soapy water, or chuck it in your normal steriliser if it can handle it (or get some cold water tablets)

I used ice cube trays and I found some great ones in IKEA that were ice sticks that were really easy to pop in to bottles.

I also used these little tubs from Asda that were about 25p each so I got loads. They held about 2-3oz and I still use them for mini breadsticks/carrot sticks/snacks foe lunch boxes or picnics.

I washed in hot soapy water and air dried before using.
