I need some advise from expienced moms. Last night someone in my house let the refrigetor open. I have A LOT of pumped breastmilk in there. Early on the moorning I woke up to feed my baby and I had to pump because I was very uncomfortable. Sadly found out the refrigetor opened with a temp at 28. I found 2 frozen breastmilk bags semi-defrozen, they had 4oz each one, I will say that were maybe 25% defrozen. I was able to still feel hard frozen milk inside. Should I throw them away? The rest of the milk was 'fine' because they were dip inside. I didn't find anymore bags defrozen like those 2. What should I do???

Refreeze. As long as it wasn't fully thawed, it's fine to freeze again.
