Comments: It's Time to. . . PUMP. . . *CLAP* You up!

They also make storage bags for breast milk, not sure if they'd take up less room in the freezers.

Beth, we did use bags when we had our first child. But, the hospital doesn't want us using bags because they're a pain to work with when thawing them for injected feedings. So, we're stuck using the cylinders for now.

Ugh, I had to do the same thing. I wasn't lucky with that kind of over supply but the pumping all through the night...It's tough. Mel deserves a cookie.

Hey Ryan, we have a freezer in our garge with extra space if you are needing it! Just let me know.

We used the cylinders a few years back and ran into the same problem. Start using the bags--it helped greatly. You can freeze the bags flat then store stacked. Square tupperware-type containers help manage the stacking (upright once frozen). They label well, too, so it's easier to sort and store.

Do NOT mess with a lactating Mama. She will. Kill. You. And Zoey, based on the Poop Patrol Reports, is gonna need every drop. Soon enough it'll be replaced by steaks and frozen tacos. Or is that just my fridge? BTW, you're all doing great. Chin up, totally unknown friend. ;)

Twenty years ago when pumping breast milk was a necessity in my daily routine, my husband had a recurring nightmare that I had been sucked into the breast pump in my entirety. Oh my! This is a stressful time, and hoarding is the least of it!

Prayers continue.
