Breastfeeding tip : Recognising a growth spurt

* You feel as though you haven't got enough
* Baby getting upset at the breast (though can be a sign of other common problems)
* Baby is breastfeeding often or almost nonstop (feel like baby is always wanting to feed)
* A baby who was previously sleeping through the night is now waking to breast feed several times
* Baby will latch and unlatch, fussing in between

Is it safe to put expressed milk in fridge for long periods of time, say three or more months?

not in the fridge but you can put in the freezer for a few months. theres a link here on kelly.com:
http://www.kellymom.com/bf/pumping/milkstorage.html

its says :

Refrigerator (fresh milk) 8 days
Refrigerator (thawed milk) 24 hours

Freezer compartment
inside refrigerator (older-style) - 2 weeks

Self-contained freezer unit
of a refrigerator/freezer - 3-6 months

Separate deep freeze - 6-12 months

Hope this helps

Yep agree with Helen.

Breastmilk is kept much fresher if you freeze within that day of expressing.
