  • Yes - if the milk is in a cooler for a couple of hours, you can put it back into the fridge for a few more days. Here's a link to a chart on kellymom that shows how long you can store milk in different places:

  • Yes you can, but it depends how long its in the cooler and if its like to the point where ice is melted and everything.. if it's still chilled at a good temp then its fine to put it back in the fridge. Congrats for breastfeeding!
