    Thanks everyone! I'm about to order the Lansinoh bags on Amazon, but reviews seem to say that the Nuk bags are better. I think I'll start another thread about storage bags....thanks again!

    I made sure I was on a steady surface and dropped it in through the top then unzipped and pulled the zipper part over the threads and screwed the top back on. I had to be careful I didn't overfill the bags. Spill city if the bags where overfilled.

    That trick with the Lansinoh bags sounds neat, but I'm guessing it won't work with frozen milk? (Ie, you have to defrost the milk in the bag first?)

    We're also using the Playtex nursers. Playtex used to make a pump adaptor system to allow you to pump directly into the drop-ins liners. I don't think they are still making it, but diapers.com still has some. I have them from DD1. I found that I can drop a liner into a bottle. screw on the adaptor, and pump right into the liner, take off the adaptor, and screw on a ring/nipple or one of the caps provided with the adaptor kit. I think this will work for me for fresh milk (ie, what I pump on Monday is used for daycare on Tuesday) but not for freezing. One of the downsides though is that it is very hard to tell exactly how much milk you pump. The measurements on the liners seem accurate but the measurements on the bottles themselves are way off.

    Default What's your system for pumping and storing breastmilk?

    Yes, TwoBees that's exactly the system I'm using now- I have the adaptors as well as all the rings and caps from 5 years ago when I had DD. According to amazon reviews, the new white rings and caps (the old ones that I have are blue) leak sometimes.

    It's a great and convenient system, but it's not ideal for freezing as you said. It's not space efficient and you need so many rings and caps. I decided that I will use bags for the extra milk that I freeze and the drop-in liners only for milk that's being used the next day.

    And they're apparently not compatible with the older parts either!

    I scoured the shelves of a few stores and found a few boxes of the older premium bottles and scooped them up (not the straight bottles, but the ones that are clear and curved with designs).
