Would you toss it?

So I know what Kelly Mom says http://kellymom.com/bf/pumpingmoms/milkstorage/reusing-expressedmilk/ (Basically no large studies have been done and it may or may not be ok, so try tasting and smelling etc and use your best judgement) But Im curious as to what you ladies think about reheating an unfinished bottle the next day?

i.e. I pumped a bottle today for tomorrow, so it was fresh, not defrosted, but my nanny thought the baby was still hungry after having what I left for the baby today, so he dipped into tomorrow's stash.  But after heating it and offering it to my son, baby hardly drank any at all. The nanny put it back in the fridge. So...would you toss it? or feed it to baby tomorrow?

I'd probably smell it, taste, and go from there

Toss it.

If she didn't heat it, she could offer it one more time but since it was heated I would toss it.

Of you aren't having issues keeping up supply wise, I'd just toss. If you run short or close to, I'd save & smell.
