I have an ounce of milk in the fridge that I just pumped this morning. It's been there for about 3 hours...can I add it to one of my smaller bags that is already frozen?

I think you aren't supposed to add to already frozen milk. You can pump again today and once both are chilled, add them together.

I don't think so, but you could pump again today and freeze it together once chilled!

Damn. I didn't want to waste an entire bag for just one ounce. I only have one bottle to pump in, and that's what I put in the fridge. I want to try and pump a bit more right now to take to my Mom's tonight, so SO and I can go on a date...or do you think 9.5 ounces will be enough for an evening? I almost never pump, so I don't have a clue how much DS eats at a time....lol He's 4 days shy of being 11 months, if that makes a difference...

That should be enough! Just put that in the bottle you intend to use! And pump then!

The bottle is at my Mom's house, or else I would do that. Oh well...not a big deal, I guess. By the time he's due for milk again, it will be close to when we get back from our night out...I'll just nurse him to top him up if the 9.5 ounces isn't enough....I can't see him eating more than that though....that seems like a lot now that I think about it.

My son always drinks a TON when I'm not around to nurse.
