This wiki has been updated 15 times since it was first published in January of 2017. Storage bags are a convenient way to preserve your breast milk if you're pumping more than needed or heading back to work while your little one stays at home with a caregiver. The whole nursing process can be frustrating and stressful, so our top picks come highly recommended by moms themselves, based on quality, ease of use, and reliability, to get you through this challenging time.

New moms don't need one more thing to worry about, so we looked for breast milk storage bags that would at least make this one task a bit easier. Ameda Store'N Pour can be bumped directly into, and come with adapters, while the Tommee Tippee Pump and Go Starter Set is a complete kit that offers everything you need to collect, store, and serve, including a slow-flow nipple for feeding. If you don't need a whole kit because you already have your preferred baby bottles, you'll like that the Nuk Seal 'N Go fit easily into most bottle holders.
Nobody could blame a mom for crying over spilled milk because her stuff is particularly precious and time-consuming to extract. So we made sure our bags have features to prevent leaks and loss. Dr. Brown's Double Zip are impressively thick, and most parents praise these for almost never leaking, even when sharp, frozen milk pushes up against their corners. Milkies No-Break No-Leak also boast double-zipper closures to minimize the chances any drops get out.
A couple other features stood out as helpful, like the perforated tops on Mommy's Precious Pre-Sterilized, which come off easily when you're ready to pour, and the large and well-labeled lines on Philips Avent SCF603 that make it more convenient to record information about the milk.
