When storing breast milk, can I mix pumpings together?

Yes in some cases: Generally that is ok if it is all going to be eaten within the same day and if neither batch is frozen. Do not add fresh breast milk to frozen milk, and do not add fresh breast milk to old breast milk unless it will all be consumed within 24 hours.
