Can Pumped Breast Milk From Different Breasts Go in the Same Bottle?

You might not be able to pump enough milk from one breast — or even from a single pumping session — to fill a bottle for your baby. In such cases, you can combine milk from different breasts, different pumping sessions or even different days in one container, according to Shirley Donato, a registered nurse and certified lactation consultant with Virtua Memorial Hospital in Mount Holly, NJ. She suggests that you chill freshly expressed milk before adding it to your frozen milk.
