DD is now 5 wks old. I am combined feeding. I am having problems with my supply so I just started to express. I tried an hour back for 45 mins and managed to get just half an ounce altogether from both sides.
Anyway, I have now put it in the fridge in a sterlized bottle and I understand it will last there for 24 hours.
I will try expressing again in half an hour. What I want to know is, can I mix whatever I manage to express now with the milk already in the fridge?
It is safe to add to the milk but I always chilled the second lot of milk before adding it, if that makes sense? Just put the second bottle in the fridge for 30mins (or till I remembered) then put it in the first bottle. Just seemed wrong to add warm milk to cold... Could just be my weird logic though.
