Re: Question

i think it can be out of the fridge for 8 hours and be fine... not 100% on that.
unless the baby drinks out of the bottle then you have to use it within an hour.

i'll take a bag out of the freezer and take it with me in the diaper bag still frozen/thawing and i just make sure i use it within a few hours.

Re: Question

Here's a good document with guidelines:

http://www.leron-line.com/handouts/S...d_Handling.pdf

It says that previously refrigerated milk should be kept at room temp no longer than about an hour. Fresh milk that has not yet been refrigerated is good at room temp for up to 6-8 hours. Previously frozen milk is good for 24 hours after thawing.

I think those are typical guidelines...I will add though that I save my milk at any temperature fresh or frozen or thawed for longer than the guidelines and it's been fine so far...I've left fresh milk at room temperature for about 20 hours and it was still good...frozen thawed milk 4-5 hours room temp and a few days in the fridge... nt advising you to do that, but, I do - I just can't bing myself to waste any milk!
