Re: Question about feeding frozen BM to babe...

I think it depends on your milk. Some women's milk will stay fresher longer. It also depends on how long it was frozen and how long it was in the fridge before freezing.

I take a week's worth of frozen milk to my babysitter's house and put it in her freezer. She defrosts in warm water and leaves it out ready for the next feeding. I think most of time time DD drinks it within 1 hour but I know she has left it out for 3-4 hours without a problem.

How about you try it at home and see how well your milk holds up. Spoiled EBM will smell and taste like spoiled cow's milk. Then you will know what guidelines to give to your sitter's.
