I haven't particularly expressed for swine flu but I do think it is a good idea to have a store of expressed milk. I've stocked up the freezer because DS2 is 3 months and I'd quite like a contingency. No harm in stocking up but no need to panic/get obsessive about it.

Are you planning for shop closures (in which case the leccy will go off and thaw your precious supplies)?

You can't give antibodies unless you've had it.

Sorry, I only ask beacuse I got a bee in my bonnet about expressing for ds2 when he was pretty tiny and now he's 14 months I have a stack of unused bm in the freezer

I'm expressing to allow me to go out on my own and have someone else feed DS2, not swine flu. I've always thought a store to be a good idea though.

Cook with it people - it makes fab rice pudding for your toddler! Best not to mention it to the inlaws though when they greedily scoff the lot grin
