Quick clarification on frozen milk

I'm going out to dinner tomorrow evening around 6:30. DH will need to give a bedtime bottle. Do I need to wait until after 6:30 tonight to put it in the fridge, or does he have 24 hrs to use it AFTER it dethaws?

Can you not put it in the fridge in the morning?

Re: Quick clarification on frozen milk

When I go to work, DH defrosts the milk straight out of the freezer as he needs it. We use storage bags though, and they defrost pretty quickly in warm water. I think the 24-hour rule applies to milk once it's completely defrosted, but it is a bit of a gray area.

This is what I tell him to do, but he is in charge of feedings so rarely that he sometimes misses the hunger signs. Once it got to the screaming baby point and DH still had to defrost the milk. That was awhile ago, but he still refuses to be left alone with only frozen milk!

That would totally be my DH if we did bottles...

Re: Quick clarification on frozen milk

It should be fine for 24 hours after it is fully dethawed.
