Help a foster mom out!

We will be getting a new placement soon. The little baby is in the NICU. He will be released in about 2 weeks. Mom wants to pump. So I will be getting the breastmilk at visits.
For my peace of mind...after the milk is pumped how long is it good for unfrozen? How long is it good frozen? After its been thawed if not all used how long is it good for (in the frig). Formula I know can sit out up to an hour after mixed. How long can breastmilk sit out for.
Thanks for any help. Im ok with giving the baby his mamas milk since it will be tested to make sure its clean and happy she wants to do this for the baby but I need advice on how to handle it.
Thanks!

My Mood:
I think it's 4 hours at room temp, 4-7 day in the fridge and 3-6 months in the freezer. 24 hours once it's thawed! Check kellymom.com

Re: Help a foster mom out!

Thanks! It gave me the info that I was looking for!
So I take it once its been in the frig you can take it out of the frig or after its been thawed its good for several hours right. Am I reading that right?
