Will the milk keep?
Pumped on Saturday and refrigerated the milk with the anticipation of using it Sunday when I worked, however I'm sick and didn't go to work, I just called out for tomorrow now too as the baby has caught my illness and I'm still very sick. I work on Wednesday will the milk be good on Wednesday or should I dump the 20 ounces I worked so hard for?

My chart I have says breastmilk keeps 8 days in the fridge. So it should be fine.

If the baby hasn't drank any of it. I would put it in the freezer now and then defrost it for Wednesday.

Yea it should be fine as long as you keep it in the fridge you could even freeze it to use at a later date as well!
