Let’s face it – pumping and storing breast milk takes effort. It is a labor of love, of course, but hard work nonetheless. But, if pumping and storing your breast milk helps you reach your breastfeeding goals and allows your child to have your breast milk for as long as possible, it is worth every bit of effort, right? Milk Trays, a breast milk freezing system, can help to make this chore easier. At first glance, Milk Trays look similar to typical ice cube trays. But, take a closer look and you will see that Milk Trays are much, much more. Unlike ice cube trays, Milk Trays are specifically designed for expressed milk. Most importantly, Milk Trays are made from PET plastic, a food-safe plastic that contains no bisphenol-A (BPA), phthalates, or dyes. Milk Trays freeze your milk in 1-ounce “Milk Sticks” that fit through ALL bottle openings and allow you to thaw just the right amount of milk for each feeding – so that not a drop of your “liquid gold” goes to waste. Milk Trays have fitted lids that protect your milk while it freezes and allow for space-saving stacking in the freezer, and the trays are flexible enough to allow the Milk Sticks to be removed easily. And, last but not least, Milk Trays are reusable – making them the most economical and environmentally-friendly choice for freezing your breast milk.

Instructions for use:

1) Pour breast milk directly into trays just below the “fill line” – Do not overfill (milk will expand as it freezes).
2) Cover trays with lid and place in freezer, milk will be frozen in 3-4 hours.
3) After removing frozen trays, wait approx. 30-45 seconds before flexing to remove your milk sticks. For a demonstration, please click here.
4) To remove milk sticks, hold tray at both ends and begin flexing back and forth several times. As the milk sticks begin separating it will become easier to flex the tray.
5) Place sticks into a ziplock bag (quart size recommended) and place back in freezer for future use.
6) Hand wash trays.

Is your baby ready to start eating solid foods? With so many pre-packaged baby foods available, finding the healthiest foods from the grocery store shelves can be a difficult chore. Instead of spending valuable time in the supermarket aisles scrutinizing baby food jar labels, many parents find it easier and more comforting (not too mention more economical) to make baby foods at home. Homemade baby foods are fresher and more nutrient-dense than many pre-packaged baby foods. And, by making your own, you get to choose exactly what goes into the foods your baby is eating – that means no additives, preservatives, starchy fillers, sugar or sodium! But, life with a baby is hectic and unpredictable, so trying to make homemade baby food each day can become burdensome. Making a big batch of baby food from your favorite vegetables or fruits and freezing it for later use is a great way to be sure you have food ready for your baby when you need it.

  • Each tray freezes eight 1-ounce “Milk Sticks”, allowing you to thaw the exact amount you need for each feeding
  • Trays are made from medical-grade plastic that is free from bisphenol-A (BPA), phthalates, and dyes
  • Milk Sticks fit in ALL bottle openings
  • Manufactured in the USA
  • 100% reusable and recycleable
  • More economical than milk storage bags – 2 trays costs $19.95
  • Hand-wash only

Great trays

Perfect for baby purée food. Easy to clean. I like it’s only 1 oz.

Melted in dishwasher despite instructions

The directions for cleaning said that the trays could be cleaned in the top shelf of the dishwasher—the first time I tried it, all both lids and trays warped and I can no longer use them. Also hard to use without spilling.

Wonderful concept but hard to use

I really want to love this environmental friendly option for milk storage. However, the milk sticks are incredibly hard to expel from the container, even after I’ve let them thaw slightly on the counter for a few minutes. Time is so precious in motherhood, and spending a few minutes trying to expel the sticks from their respective containers can feel so aggravating. Conceptually, the idea is fantastic. I hope that this product can be improved.

Reusable Option for Freezing Breast Milk

I was having a hard time with the disposable bags because they aren’t easy (for me) to wash and reuse. The waste we were generating was terrible. I ordered these trays and have been happy with how well they work, not to mention how much plastic we are keeping out of the landfill. It is much easier to portion milk for bottles now than it was when were using the freezer bags so I feel like we have really benefitted!!

Storing made easy!!!

LOVE this product. Very easy to store breast milk. Pouring the milk is easy and you can see the line that measures 1oz. The lid DOES NOT clip on, so be careful when moving into the freezer – it’s not hard to move without spilling. The frozen bricks pop right out and i separate the bricks by week in a labeled ziplock freezer bag. The bricks melt easy in bottles left in the fridge overnight. LOVE LOVE LOVE this.

Milkies Milk Trays

I love these. It goes well with the milkie milk saver. They are easy to clean. It allowed me to freeze the let down from nursing that was between 1 to 2 ounces s having to hold it in my pumping bottle containers. The frozen milk is easy to pop out and nice and thin to fit in any size bottles.
