Frozen breastmilk bags leaking upon thawing

Question:

Hello,

My name is Amy. I have a 5 month old baby girl, for whom I have been pumping, storing and freezing breastmilk since February for when I return to work. I currently have over 100 bags of milk. I froze each bag flat and have them stored in the back of the freezer in Ziploc freezer bags. Each time I thaw out an individual bag of milk, it leaks. I don't know what is going on, but it is wasting so much milk. I'm getting very frustrated because I thought these would not do that. Do you have a solution for how not to have them leak?

Thank you!
Amy Salfen
