While breastfeeding your newborn baby, it's important to have all of the accessories like nipple pads, a breast pump, and all of the accessories to go with it. There are also some supplies that you may have never considered before your nursing days got started. If you plan on going back to work after your baby is born, then it's important to have a large supply of frozen milk ready to go. This milk is important for other family members and caretakers to feed your baby while you are out. This milk is also precious and should be kept safe. This is why it's important to have a variety of items for your home to ensure that it stays safe.
Frozen breast milk can gather up quickly and it's probably not a good idea to shove all those bags between boxes of Hot Pockets. Getting a separate box freezer for the frozen milk can ensure that it stays protected. This will prevent any punctures into the bags and allow them to lay flat on the bottom of the freezer. You could also organize the bags a lot easier and keep them in the order of the date that they were pumped.
Once frozen breast milk is thawed, it cannot be frozen again. This is why it's essential that a freezer is protected and any power outages are prevented. This is why it's a good idea to have a backup generator installed in your home. If the power goes out, the generator can keep the milk frozen and prevent any of it from spoiling. The spoiled milk would be a huge waste of time and resources. With a generator installation, the power will automatically kick over to the generator so that no cold air is lost from the freezer.
Child Safety Lock
Not only do you want to protect your breast milk from any type of power outage, but you also want to prevent prying hands from accessing it. If you have other children in the home, then it may be a good idea to add a child safety lock to the freezer. This will ensure that the freezer stays locked and all of the breast milk is kept safe. If you keep the freezer in a garage or basement, the extra lock can also prevent any type of animal or pest from getting inside.
Having these extras will add a lot of reassurance to your home and can make a huge difference when you are storing milk.
