Hi,

Im a bit confused about this....my baby is 7 weeks and is very satisfied with me exclusively breastfeeding. However, as he is a hungry baby, he sometimes feeds in excess of 8 times overnight and its leaving me shattered! :mad:

I dont want to give formular as i have enough milk, but wanted to get DH helping with night feeds. Ive started to express and freeze some Breast milk but then read that frozen breast milk loses its goodness? Is this right as want to give my son the best I can?

Also if I did use this milk, how is best to defrost frozen breast milk and how long is it good for etc? I have looked on net but find such conflicting advice....Any ideas??

I sometimes express in the morning for the day which is fine, but wanted to freeze as well so that DH can help me when I need him to.

Thnaks for taking time to read ;)
