Breast milk or ASIP is one method to provide optimal nutritional needs for infants if the mother is unable to breastfeed the baby directly, excess breast milk production or due to other reasons. ASIP can also help smooth the production of ASI.
ASIP has a storage requirement that must be considered. This is due to the asip content which can change due to temperature changes and susceptible to exposure to bacteria from the outside environment.
Asip that has been milked, can last a maximum of 6-8 hours at room temperature and can last up to 24 hours in a closed cooler bag in the temperature range of 15 to 4 degrees Celsius. Asip stored in the refrigerator (not in the freezer) with a temperature of 4 degrees Celsius, can last up to 5 days. However, if the asip is not used immediately, it can be stored in the freezer and can last 2 weeks (1 door refrigerator) for up to 6 months (2 door refrigerator / freezer freezer) depending on the type of freezer from the refrigerator owned.
Related to your question, ASIP storage in the freezer may be placed close to ice cubes. This will not affect the quality of the frozen milk content. ASI can experience changes in its contents if it experiences changes in temperature that is too hot, or by shaking ASIP when it will be used. Therefore, know the correct use of ASIP so that the quality is maintained. Do not open the freezer door too often which can trigger the melting of ASIP because ASIP that has melted should be consumed immediately and is not recommended to be frozen again.
The following tips on storing aspasi as recommended by the Indonesian Pediatrician Association:
Washing hands before milking is asip
Put in a sterile special container and cover as closely as possible and leave room for the wings to expand when frozen
Write down the asip time milked and make sure the date printed when will use it
Don't shake the asip
Frozen Asip can be thawed in the lower refrigerator the day before or with the help of warm water
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
