  • I know the answer: on the counter for 4 hours, fridge for 3 days, fridge freezer 3 months and deep freezer 6 months:) Always cool and warm gently. Cool in fridge for 12 hours before freezing and to thaw put from freezer to fridge 12 hours then heat in luke warm water. Good luck!

  • it depends on the freezer. usually the freezer above the fridge is no longer than 3 months. if you have a deep freezer, it can last 6-12 months, it depends on how cold you have it at. also, the fridge is usually just 2-4 days. smell it or taste it before you give it to baby and you'll def know if it is bad or not.
