couple of breast milk storage questions

Hi! I have a couple of questions.. I am a first timer at this (breastfeeding and being a mom lol)

1. Once I warm refrigerated milk, how long can it stay at room temp before it is no longer good?

Sometimes my DD doesn't eat much of her bottle, and I don't want to waste the milk if I don't have to.

2. Same question for frozen milk.. once it is warmed.

I JUST thawed frozen milk for the first time, thinking my DD was hungry.. she fell asleep.. lol.. so i'm wondering how long I can keep it at room temp?

3. After I have thawed frozen milk, can I store it in the fridge? And if so, for how long?

  • Really good info on breastmilk storage and handling at http://www.kellymom.com/bf/pumping/milkstorage.html


    Previously frozen milk may be kept in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours after it has finished thawing. Do not refreeze.


    If baby does not finish milk at one feeding, it may be refrigerated and offered at the next feeding before it is discarded.
