Breastmilk Storage
Statement about storage time of breastmilk

Our guidelines for the storage of breastmilk are based on the latest published publications on the topic and on practical advises and experiences of lactation consultants. These data demonstrate that human milk collected in such a way to minimize bacterial contamination can be safely refrigerated in accordance with our recommendations. Based on this new update, we will change in all our instruction manuals as follow:

  • In a refrigerator, milk can be refrigerated 3-5days,.
  • In a refrigerator freezer compartment for up to 6months.
  • In a deep freezer up to 12 months.
Our standard differs slightly from the US standard because we are exporting to a variety of different countries in which storage conditions and fluctuation of living temperature are different enough to require more strict recommendations.

About Medela

In almost 40 years, Medela has developed from a one man distribution company to a global producer of the most technologically advanced breast pumps and breastfeeding accessories – which have been used by millions of mothers and their babies worldwide.

Throughout its history, Medela has been pushing the boundaries to create safe, efficient and best-selling products: Medela introduced the world’s first quality manual breast pump in 1983, and the world’s first phototherapy system for the treatment of neonatal jaundice which was small enough to be placed in a baby’s cot, in 1994. More recently, Medela introduced the 2-Phase Expression Technology, the world’s only research-based breast pump technology that mimics a baby’s natural sucking rhythm, resulting in getting mothers more milk in less time. A key aspect of Medela’s past and present success is a relentless focus on research-based medical technology – which will insure, on an on-going base, innovations in the fields of breastfeeding, phototherapy and "Healthcare".

Breastmilk

Breastfeeding is one of the most beautiful experiences for mother and child. Breastmilk contains all the important nutrients and antibodies for a baby to thrive. Breastfeeding helps the baby to build up his own immune system. There is no other nourishment which has the specific contents for a new-born. For this reason, the World Health Organization (WHO), midwives and lactation consultants as well as Paediatricians all recommend that babies should be nourished exclusively with Breastmilk during the first six months after they are born.
