All this while, I’ve been keeping my milk stock in this pre-sterelized milk bag like this!!
Really not-so-clever and not space savvy at all!!
Recently I have discovered a new (for-me, at least!!) way of storing my stock..
Flat on the surface.. soooo much better, I safe a lot of space in my fridge!
This fridge is like a drawer (tilt your head to your left for better view :p)
It looks more like a filing drawer in the office, arranged according to date!

there’s a lot…. how do you make more milk ya…?
iya bah…mcm file yg bersusun dlm drawer!
Wow Dr !! I love the way you manage your breastfeeding time for Tasha. !!
you are so creative mommy! i wanna married and be a mommy!! So inspired! hehe
wow!u make a lot of milk!! could u please tell me any ‘petua’ to increase breast milk…huhu..
i wrote about it in my previous entry when Bella was still small..
Sorry I missed the entry about the petua. Do you have link or the entry title. Would love to read. Thank 🙂
E frozen milk is for tasha alone or kongsi wit bella??
Bella is already on formula milk but whenever she’s not feeling well, I give her my milk for antibody support..
Dr, if you don’t mind telling what formula milk do you give Bella? My son’s in the same age with her, but still tak tau nak bagi formula apa after I deliver second baby nanti.. Too many choices.. Huhu
looks like very systematic Dr..like it!!!
Untuk simpan susu sebanyak ni perlu ker untuk sediakan pt sejuk khas?
saya campur jer.. tp lama2 nanti tak muat lar.. depends on your commitment nak susukan berapa lama and susu byk ke tidak..
Yeah I did that too! So much organized. The freezer looks kemas.
we are obsessive mommies!! hahaha..
Dr, did you mix all milk you pumped from multiple sessions? Can we do that?
Or you do have more than 150cc milk in one session, wow, thats a lot?
ni kongsi ngan bella ke? byknya
Bella dah minum formula milk, tp kengkadang dia minum jugak breast milk, especially when she is not feeling well for antibody support..
dr,mane nak dapatkan paket mcm tue ~ 🙂
One baby world byk..

suka baca blog dr. boleh planning bila ada anak nnt. hiks! ^_^
as I’m still single, I didn’t really understand why do mommies keep a lot of milk stock, I mean like in this post, thats a lot haha. this site help me learn too. thank for the info!
when we go to work, heat up this milk for the babysitter to feed the baby. we dont use susu tepung dear.
oh that’s awesome. didn’t know that we can keep it for future use! it is amazing we can keep it that long!
Yeap. N while the milk production is still abundant, we want to stock up as much as we can so we’ll never run out of supply. Susu tepung we can always run n buy from the market 🙂
such a creative mommy. .
Wow.. Byk nye stok dr… Good job
ini sikit info utk bykkn susu badan
happy reading 🙂 TQ
Doc.. i support bf.. now I bf my bb boy almost a year.. tapi macam dah ade vitamin ‘m’ (malas) la lately ni.. camne ye??
it’s your choice. up to you.. i stopped Bella on bf and started her on formula milk when she turned 1. from there on, she only drink breast milk before she goes to sleep..
Dr, we have less than 100 days to approach puasa month, ye haaa! How you cope when you are breasfeeding and have you experienced diminishing supply while you fast? Any pumping schedule specifically during puasa month?
Salam, dear Dr harlina. May u suggest me the best breast pump that is more practical n easy to use plus not heavy?i just got pregnant n looking fwd to bf my baby. Love to read ur blog:)
congratulations on your pregnancy. as far as i know, the best breast pump is from medela brand. there’s many options, you can have single pump or double pump and you can choose btwn manual and electric pump. check it out before buying because medela pump can be quite costly. as for me, i use medela swing (thats the name for single, electric pump) it is small, light and easy to fit to my bag because i carry my breast pump to work.. all the best!!
Halina, If u pakai medela freestyle lagi jimat masa. U bz dgn work i think lagi best pakai FS. I pumped at work while replying emails and signing documents! 20mins and I’m done both sides serentak.
i know but FS is bulky and the bag is tak chantek 😀 trust me to buy things on its looks!! haha.. *bimbo moment*
sy pn mula2 simpan mcm dr tu…skrg br bbrp bulan dh cuba cara yg leperkan tu…lg kemas.. 😉
Huiyooo byknya stok dr.
doc,camne you flatkan ebm tu.i mean baringkan dia and freezekanke camner?? haiya,silly me.could not get the method la :p
Masa lembik baringkan dalam freezer. Bila dah keras baru susun mcm file.
Yeah I did that too! Seriously i’m proud when my freez full with milk.. 😉
bz macamana pun mesti nak baca blog dr…even selalu nampak bella dkat swimming pool…comel
congrates Dr. Love to see moms breastfeed their babies and making stocks. Keep me motivated too.. 🙂
subhanallah….banyaknye…sy kurang ilmu masa anak 1st dpt bf smpi 3bln lbh je…2nd bb hanya buat stok ble time keje je…tp nk dekat sethn ni pam pn susu da malu2 nk kuar….tp my bb lbh byk mkn dr menyusu xtaula tu sbbkn milk supply down tp sy akan usaha utk nxt bb..mana xnya, nk dptkn 1 team bola….hehe…will always follow yr post coz ada byk info

curious mommy ^_^
dr halina ajar bella/tasha minum ebm dari botol sejak umur berapa ye? diorang tak pernah nipple confuse eh?
What is the brand of the fridge that has a drawer like yours???
Hahha.. Brand fridge pun tanya?? 😀 Dahsyat awak ni!! LG fridge saya pakai..
sebelum pregant i dah ikut blog dr., samapai sekarang, i dah deliverly bb girl,baru 2 month… gara2 blog dr, i berkeyakinan besar untuk fully Bf my bb girl .. sampai hubby tanya , sampai bila nak bf bb .. sekarang bb sudah 2 bulan , belum pernah rasa susu formula ,.. memang bb senang di jaga kalau bf .. sebelum ini tak terlintas nak Bf dan Hampir putus asa , sebab first time , rasa macam sakit kalau bf.. tapi sekarang ok sudah .. Bangga juga rasanya dapat bf bb fully ..hehehehe..
Hehe..u sama dgn i..bc blog doc buat i bkeyakinan nk fully bf bby..i pun skrg bby dh 2 bln lebih n fully bf..sgt2 bangga kan :)) cuma da prob nk soh bby guna botol..bby xnk gna puting botol..2 mgu lg nk trn kja dh..risau sgt2..mcm2 puting dh try..tp bby still refused 😦
thought of simpan ebm flat mcm ni jugak dulu..but through my reading..ebm ni akan ‘naik’ sikit bila dah frozen kan..so kalau flat, is there any room for that? or it doesn’t matter actually?hehe
doc…. did you use microwave to heat that up or just tunggu je sampai sejuk dia hilang ?
Never microwave breastmilk. Just thaw the frozen milk overnight in the fridge down compartment. And warm the milk in hot water when baby needs it. Rendam the bag i meant. Better still, use baby food warmer (then you’ll get the right temp).
does it affect the baby ? what about us, does it affect us? I thought microwave is suitable for every age… thank you for the info .. 😉
Yes it does affect the breastmilk. 2 reasons: first because over heating the breastmilk (which the microwave does) will destroy the nutrients in the breastmilk. We cannot heat the milk above our body temp. The original milk comes from mommy’s body which is 37c (perfect temp for the baby). Reason no 2: heating with microwave nanti ada hot spots and boleh burn the baby mouth. Hope the above info helps. And one more info-never ever shake breastmilk. Just swirl gently until the 2 layers mix well. Shaking will destroy and nutrients too.
thank you very much =D Have a great day.
