Can ASIP That Has Been Stored In The Refrigerator Be Put In The Freezer?
Hay, I want to ask. For example, tonight I save 8 bottles of pumped ASIP in the refrigerator to give my baby the next day. But it turns out that on the next day only 6 bottles of ASIP were drunk. Is it okay if I put the remaining 2 bottles of ASIP into the freezer to be frozen as ASIP stock?

Dairy milk or ASIP is a method to provide optimal nutritional needs for babies if the mother is unable to breastfeed the baby directly.
ASIP has storage provisions that must be considered. This is due to the content of asip which can change due to temperature changes and is 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 a temperature range of 15 to 4 degrees Celsius. Archive stored in the refrigerator (not in the freezer) at 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 to 6 months depending on the type of freezer you have.
Related to your question, breast milk that has been in the refrigerator should not be frozen in the freezer. Given that your ASI can last up to 5 days at the temperature of the non-freezer refrigerator, then your ASI can be used again the next day. The basic reason for this is that the content of breastmilk can change due to changes in room temperature around it.
The following are tips for storing breast milk as recommended by the Indonesian Pediatric Association:
Wash your hands before expressing milk. Put in a special sterile breast milk container and cover it as tightly as possible and leave room for the breast to expand when it freezes. Write down the milking time and make sure the date is printed when you use it Do not shake frozen breast milk. with the help of warm water That's the information I can convey, hopefully it helps
