Wondering if I need to throw this milk out...I hope not!

Posted by   + Show Post
Today I left Elena for the first time. I had a few bags of frozen milk and on the way to my dads to drop her off I pumped so when she got there she had 3oz of fresh milk in the bottle. Well she only drank about 2oz and I had brought 2 frozen bags 4oz each with me just in case. (I wayyyyy over prepare lol) anyways we had stuff to do after I picked her up and the milk thawed but stayed cold in the insulated bag. So now I have 8oz of thawed milk in the fridge and she probably won't have to take a bottle again until Tuesday. So will the thawed milk be good for a few days or is it only good for 24 hours? I hate to dump it down the drain :(

Thank you, mostly I'm going on info I'm given and instinct.. No one in my family breastfed and none of my friends with kids did


Quoting Nicolle_09:

Never rely on WIC for breastfeeding, they are very poorly trained in most cases. 

Heres the link that works to best for storage info:

Wic didn't tell me that one! Lol thank you





Quoting Nicolle_09:

Thawed is only good for 24 hours in the fridge, fresh is good for a week in the fridge.





Quoting victoriangavin:

Breastmilk is good in the fridge for 7 days, deepfreezer for a year, and freezer for 6 months. You just can't refreeze thawed milk

I was always told I could refreeze thawed milk once but no more than that. I have done that on numerous occasions. My daughter is fine sonic you're not supposed to do that oh well

If shes old enough to eat things look up things you can make for her using breast milk.
