How much do you have frozen "just in case"?

I've been donating my extra but realized I should probably hang on to some. But how much? 24 hours worth? 3 days? A week?

I would say a weeks worth. But I've never had a freezer stash.

Re: How much do you have frozen "just in case"?

I would think it would depend on what the "just in case" is you were stashing it for. A lot of the emergency prep stuff recommends having a 72 hour kit, so I'd think that at least 72 hours would be a good amount, but I haven't pumped at all for this baby, and never pumped with the last baby either so I don't have experience actually storing it myself.

I am freezing as much as I can just in case. I'm not going crazy pumping but once a day I get an extra couple ounces after feeding and save it. I know someone who froze enough to stop breastfeeding and continue giving breast milk via bottle for a few months.

I never thought about it either but I would try for 3 days.

I've never had a frozen just in case stash. I've actually never had a stash at all.

I suppose 3 days for an emergency.

I've never had a stash of my own and I don't worry about it too much. I've donated virtually everything I've ever pumped.

I had two weeks built up and I was trying for more, but when I went back to work my supply dropped considerably. Now I have two bottle stored and I have to pump like crazy all weekend for any additional time away from my LO.

Two weeks made me feel a lot more comfortable than 2 bottles.
