What is the policy here? I have a bottle of pumped milk in the fridge which was pumped four days ago and most, if not all of my pumped milk will go to donation. Coen does not take bottles but I pump once a day for emergency and donation purposes or if I'm just too engorged to bare. Normally I pump and then bag, date, and freeze immediately, however this time I woke up engorged beyond belief , both boys were still asleep and we were in a rush to make an appointment, so I just capped one of the bottles and put it in the fridge, gave the rest to DS1 in a cup....he was confused, lol. We left the house ASAP and I had planned on transferring it to the freezer as soon as we got home that day...well I forgot, and found it at the back of the fridge today. NOW I DO NOT intend on freezing or donating this milk, but when I pumped for DS1, I would leave milk up to 24 hrs in the fridge and still freeze it, I never knew if there was some kind of guideline for this, but now I'd really like to know as to not waste anymore milk, because I threw out a lot of milk unnecessarily before I knew about donation, but now I can't stand the thought of wasting a drop when others are in need.....SO how long can breastmilk be left in the fridge, if at all, before freezing???
