Breastfeeding is one of the most natural and beneficial activities for mother and baby. There is no other single action by which a mother can so dramatically impact the present and future health of her baby.
No formula can duplicate the unique properties of breastmilk, no matter how many vitamins, minerals and supplements are added to what is basically a chemical formulation.
Breastmilk is the one and only natural, complete and complex nutrition for human infants. Just as importantly, breastfeeding promotes an exceptional bond between mother and baby that only a mother can provide.

Breastmilk is very precious

In refrigerator for 10 hours
Tips for freezing/thawing breastmilk:
Do not store breastmilk in the door of the refrigerator. Instead choose the coldest part of the refrigerator (this is at the back of the glass shelf above the vegetable compartment).
You can freeze expressed breastmilk in milk bottles or "Pump & Save"* bags. Do not fill the bottles or bags more than 3/4 full to allow space for possible expansion.
Label the bottles or "Pump & Save" bags with the date of expression.
Do not thaw frozen breastmilk or do not warm breastmilk in a microwave or a pan of boiling water to avoid loss of vitamins, minerals and other important components and to prevent burns.
ln order to preserve the components of the breastmilk, thaw the milk in the refrigerator overnight. Alternatively, you can hold the bottle or "Pump & Save" bag under warm water (max. 37 ° C).
Gently swirl the bottle or "Pump & Save" bag to mix any fat that has separated. Avoid shaking or stirring the milk.
With the B-Well bottle warmer, it is possible to warm breastmilk in a gentle way.
