Thanks to the flat base, you can place the bag in a stable position while you fill it and then store it upright in the fridge or freezer. Breast milk can be stored in the freezer for a longer period of time, even up to three months at -15°C. If necessary, use a cooler bag to transport the frozen breast milk storage bags.
