  • Its not like its a gallon of milk in there! Your body makes new everytime you nurse

  • Your breast milk NEVER rots in your breast so its okay to give it to her. Now if its been bumped then i wont be good after a while. I cant remember since its been about a year since I breast feed

  • When you tried to nurse to begin with, after a couple of days, your milk would not have come in yet. You would be feeding her colostrum. A drop of that is equal to several teaspoons of breastmilk.

    since your body workson supply and demand, there is nothing sitting around to go rotten. If you have milk and want to nurse her, go for it. It's not like milk sitting in the fridge past it's expiriation date. As long as it's still in your breast, it will not spoil.

  • your body will absorb any milk in your boobs if they were full when you "dries them up". It won't just sit in there & rot. Our bodies are pretty smart & know better than to just let milk rot away inside our breasts. We re-absorb it.

    How do you dry your boobs?
