I know that you can leave b'milk in the fridge for up to 5 days and out at room temp. for 5 hours but....what if you got it out of the fridge heated it, baby ate a little, let it sit out then refrigerated it, is it still safe to drink? If so, should I just skip heating it up again and next time I use it just let it sit out and get to room temp.?? Sorry if this is confusing, I just hate pumping and don't want to waste a single precious drop and would feel awful if I made her sick!Answer Question
This should help you with your decision.

I breastfed both of my children, and I was always told that expressed milk was only good for 1 hour after the baby drinks from the bottle. (Because the bacteria from their mouth gets into it). Refrigerating it doesn't change the time either.
