Medela Breastmilk Labeling and Storage System

Thanks to Medela, I was given the opportunity to review a breastmilk labeling and storage system, pictured below.

The storage system is came with two bottles that have special lids on them that are changeable to show the day of the week and time (am/pm) that the milk was pumped. This is a useful function, but would be improved by including more bottles with the system. As you can see in the picture, the tray has room to hold 6 bottles of pumped milk, which we utilized by using our own bottles that came with my pump.

I think the idea of the labeling and storage system is a useful one. Admittedly, I do not ever have 6 bottles of milk in the fridge at one time, but if you are someone who only uses fresh milk and doesn't freeze your milk, this would be a great system to keep it all in one place, and make sure that the bottles get used in the order they were pumped - just take the bottle from the front!

Medela has provided me with one of these storage systems to give to one of my readers, so if you are a breastfeeding/pumping mom, or an expectant mom, please leave a comment here and I will pick a winner at noon on Sunday, 2/27/11!

**All opinions are my own. I was provided with this product to use and review, and a product to giveaway. I was not monitarily compensated for this review and/or giveaway.

Such a great idea. It would be nice for more bottles though!

That would be nice! I am breastfeeding and pumping for my little one and get to be a donor for International Breast Milk Project as well. This would come in handy! :)

We're expecting our first child this summer and could use all the help in the world to keep us organized. This looks like a pretty great product!

I have never seen this system but it looks great. I did not get the opportunity to pump with my first child but now that we are finally pregnant again I am so excited to get the chance to pump/breastfeed!!!
