How To Freeze Breastmilk Lock Rss

Just wondering if anyone could help me - I've never done this before.

I am currently expressing milk as I am going out next month and need to leave some bottles for my baby. I know you can freeze breastmilk for 3 months in the freezer but not sure how to go about it.

Can I put the milk in an ice-cube tray and place it in a freezer bag? Is a freezer bag okay or should I use a glad seal bag? Also once the milk has frozen am I able to take the milk cubes out of it and leave them in the freezer bag so I can re-use the ice cube tray?

I need adivce quickly as the breastmilk is currently in the frigde and I've been told it can only last in the fridge for 24 hours.

The couple of times I did it I left it in bottles (got some cheap Dymples bottles from BigW) but you can get special breastmilk bags for storing it. I haven't actually found any in regular shops but you'd probably get them at a Chemist. I don't think they are cheap but I believe they are sterilised.
