How long can breast milk stay refrigerated before it can no longer be given to a baby?
Say I keep breast feeding all day in 2 months will I get more milk or less
Say you have a frozen bag of breast milk that you traveled with it in a container with a frozen pack. If you get home and a very little is unthawed at the top of the back can you stil refreeze it.
I am a mother of three and just began nursing all over again, all is going great and I would like to continue breastfeeding for at least 9 months but I need some mommy time in there as well.I do have milk stored up n the freezer for those back up days, I just need to know how MY body works...Thanks taking the time to help us unravel what seems to be such a great mistery.

How long is breast milk good for in the refrigerator??
I think the more you freeze the better. I'm planning on freezing as much as I can so I can give my baby breast milk even after our baby's teeth develop.
3-6months Deep Freezer: 6-12mos Thawed milk: never refreeze or fridgerate after warmed/prepared (thaw in fridge for 24hrs or in warm water) I feel sorta silly asking this.. but I've started to store milk in freezer bags, 1 a day to get my stock built up... do I really have to get them out in 3months and start using them? I know there are so many variations to these storing rules.. what is your thoughts ladies?
If u freeze you milk in milk bags I believe its good for a year. To unfreeze your milk heat up a cup of water not to hot! And place the bag in the cup to unfreeze. I lovedfreezing my milk because u can store it away for along time. And take it on the go .
Put the bottle you pumped into into the fridge to cool off before adding it to the milk already there. Adding warm milk to cold milk results in warming of the milk. You would have to use it within 1 hr or 2. a word of caution- certain bags tend to leak, especially defrosting. or you may just get a bad batch of a normally good brand. a good way to avoid tears over spilled milk is to drop the bag into a small ziplock as you defrost it. any leaks are caught by the extra baggie.
I have noticed that when I pull a bottle out from the freezer of expressed breast milk, once it starts to thaw it has somewhat of a sour smell. I put the milk in the freezer within 24 hours of when I pump it and it doesn't have an odor when I put it in. I store it in either the Avent bottles or the Medela pumping bottles. I worry about feeding it to my dd for fear it will make her sick, but I have no idea how it could go bad. Does anybody notice the same thing?
//www.fda.gov/cdrh/breastpumps/milk.html How long can I store breast milk?
so ive got a breast pump just in case but i was wondering if breast milk can go in the firdge and get warmed up when its needed and if it can go in the fridge how long can it stay in there for.
OK, I got the courage to call LLL, hee, hee.... A very nice woman informed me that when you add the room temp breast milk to the cold breast milk you kill some of the good stuff! She said some of the "good stuff" dies a little bit when you chill it anyways but there is NO HARM to drink the milk after you marry the warm with the cold. It just looses some if it's good properties.....boy that was weighing on me!
I'm no expert but I have been BF for the past 10 months. There is so much information out there about rules and guidelines. Here is what I have done and continue to do. I'm an on demand BF mother. I do work part time so I pump 1x when I am at work and generally I pump 1x in the middle of the night. I will leave milk at room temperature for up to 3-4 hours if I must and immediately refrigerate. I generally will keep milk in refridgerator for up to 3-4 days before freezing.
Just thought I'd post on how I store my frozen milk. I bought an upright freezer 6.9 cubic feet very roomy, also at the 99 cent store I bought the small containers. I love the lansinoh breast milk storage bags. Easy to pour in and out. When i freeze the bags I make sure there is no air inside and I lay it flat to save up on space. If you have any questions feel free to message me.
I was wondering about storage...How long can breast milk be stored on the counter? in the fridge? in the freezer? How long is it good for once it has been thawed? I honestly can't remember from a few years back..Thanks to all, and I hope all the Dec. Mommies/babies are well, and for those left to go, hang in there, your babies will be in your arms before you know it!
You could also contact the HMBA (I think it is) - it's a human milk bank that combines breast milk from multiple women, dehydrates it and I think might send it over seas. I contacted them with an excess supply but they couldn't use mine as I took baby aspirin. Are you freezing the milk flat? that helped save a ton of room for me.
) Sometimes I mix a little bit of mine with cereal and/or baby food when I start introducing solids so it can be used that way too.
I'm a ftm and I plan to breast feed but I will eventually have to return to work. I plan to pump so my baby can receive breast milk while I am away. My concern us that when I stay him on the bottle he won't want to feed from my breast anymore when I am there. When is the best time to start this and is there a way to get him to do both bottle and breast as I would like?
mom dropped dead 2 days later and the dad wanted to follow the moms desire to give her lil one breast milk.....so the lil guy received donated breast milk and did GREAT he actually went home this past Monday weighing a HUGE 6lbs....yes i cried my eyes out Saraya is still pukin ALOT and if we decide to go to strictly formula we have a freezer full of breat milk.
I pumped for 6 1/2 months, and then fed milk from the freezer for 2 more months. That milk that she was getting at 7 and 8 months was produced when she was a newborn-6 months. It was perfectly fine. While the composition of milk does change, it is still great for baby- even milk from a different time and frozen still has more beneficial properties than formula. This little one will be getting frozen milk when I quit pumping.
I never used the creams either and just expressed breast milk which has healing properties! letting them air dry is also good and wearing a cotton bra and no nursing pads that have a plastic outer cover!
