Quoting Mom_to_Skyler:EIGHT days.
Here is your bible:
inside refrigerator (older-style)
of a refrigerator/freezer
If baby is seriously ill and/or hospitalized, discuss storage guidelines with baby’s doctor.
Breastmilk is not spoiled unless it smells really bad or tastes sour.
To thaw milk
Previously frozen milk may be kept in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours after it has finished thawing. Do not refreeze.
To warm milk
The cream will rise to the top of the milk during storage. Gently swirl milk (do not shake) to mix before checking temperature and offering to baby.
If baby does not finish milk at one feeding, it may be refrigerated and offered at the next feeding before it is discarded.
Quoting Travelbugg:Gracias! So I get 24 hours once it's DONE defrosting. Good to know.
One good thing to know is that if there is ANY ice left (even one tiny crystal) you can re-freeze.
