Oops- can milk stay out

I pumped a bottle this morning and put it in the fridge. I took the bottle to my FIL and it was in the fridge there. I brought the bottle home and just realized it has been sitting in DD's bag for two hours. It is still cool. Do you think it is OK to give to her tomorrow/ or freeze? Or do I (sadly) have to throw it away?

I think it's fine @ room temp. for 5 hours if I remember right.

Yeah, my LC friend said a good way to remember is 5 hrs. at room temp, 5 days in the fridge and 5 months in the freezer. (Then 24 hrs. between thawing and storing in the fridge, but that throws off the whole '5' thing )
When I go to bed on the weekends, I set out the bottle for DH to give in the middle of the night. It just sits on the bedside table.
