My dh wants to use expressed bm that was left out all night in my insulated lunch bag w/o ice and I don't think we should. Please let me know if I am right or if it is still safe.

Well bm can sit out at room temperature for about 6 hrs.

I wouldn't risk it honestly. Although bm can stay in room temperature for 6 hours, and there was an icepack in the bag, 12 hrs is a really long time to leave bm out.

Dump it. That's too many hours.

That was my thought as well, I just needed to prove that fact to my husband. I asked him if he would drink milk that was left out of the fridge all night in a warm room. He just stopped fighti g then lol.

If you need more information for future reference, or to show your husband, look up "milk storage" on Kellymom.com.

Next time, taste it. You'll know if it is bad or not.

Somewhere there was a study that showed the bacteria in breastmilk actually went down after x number of hours, because of the antibacterial properties of the milk. Something that can't be said for pasteurized cow milk that's left out. But obviously there is a point where it starts to go bad. I'd think 12 hours might be past that point, but like Amy said, smell it or taste it, and you'd probably know.
