Hi
I know you're not supposed to add fresh to frozen milk but can you defrost 2 bags of milk to mix together? I have lots of little 1-2oz bags collected via shells, not sure how to use them.
Cheers

Yep, this shouldn't be a problem as long as they are all "in date". It's easier to defrost smaller bags too. Just remember to give the defrosted milk a good shake in the bottle to disperse the fat - think of the layer of cream that gathers in whole milk.

Absolutely fine.
Only watch out is that mixing milks of different temperatures can cause problems. As long as similar temps, fine to mix.

Good-o, thanks for that. It does seem to be quite a lot more flexible than formula doesn't it?

Totally is.
Is great to have a bottle in the fridge, grandparents come around and all they need to do is to warm it through! No measuring/kettle boiling/scooping/chilling/making sure drunk in an hour grin
