How long can BM keep in the fridge?

If I pumped on Sunday, do you think it's still good?

If you refrigerated the milk right away, it can be stored for up to 8 days in the fridge. Don't use it after 8 days. HTH

If your frozen was thawed, 24 hours, but fresh in the fridge, 8 days. Give it a sniff if you're worried but if I don't want to be bothered with freezing milk, I pump at work on Monday, put it in the fridge and feed it to my baby when I work the next Monday. It works for us.

I've heard it can keep up to 7 days if you pump and then put it in the fridge!
