I would like to start expressing BM

does it make any difference as to when I do it

mornings are probably better for me ...

how much/how long should i express for?

DD is 5 weeks old and feeds around 8 - 12 times in a day (plus evening cluster feeding)

WRT storage: I have some lanisoh pouches

how long can they be frozen for? Also, will it keep in the fridge?

TIA

Hi Ruby,

you can express whenever but I find mornings best as I feel fuller then. You will probably find that some time after you start expressing the milk will stop flowing- I find this is about 15 mins or so. I'll find a link for you WRT how much.

It will keep in the fridge for a few days- don't keep it in the fridge door though. Freezing...depends on what you read! A couple of months should be fine.
