Breast milk expiration

Common Questions and Answers about Breast milk expiration


Avatar f tn If you go through my older journals, I actually have tips on storing milk in an entry. The guidelines are flexible, depending on the person. Some people's milk spoils faster. Mine seemed to be good for a while. If I pumped at night and left it out in the cool room, it was still OK 10-12 hours later. Made night feeds easier! We relied on the sniff test- as long as it didn't smell like rotten milk, it was good to serve. Also, my LC assured me that a baby would not drink spoiled milk.
435139 tn?1255463991 As a rough rule of thumb: breast milk can be stored: at room temperature for ~ 6h In the fridge for ~ 4-6 days In the freezer for ~3 months In the deep freeze for ~ 9 months Always sniff it beforehand to make sure its ok. Breast milk can actually be left at RT longer than formula because it contains some antibacterial compounds. -On a side note: we had a bottle of breastmilk sit out for ~ 16h in a room that was close to 85F and hadnt disposed of it yet.
689528 tn?1364139441 you can combine milk after you cool the milk you are adding to the milk that is already in the fridge. Go by the "expiration" on the oldest milk in the batch. and it is very normal to get different amounts.

1158221 tn?1327976203 I think he might be done when he starts to try to slide himself to the tip of my breast. He will suckle really great and I can see him gulping the milk down for the first 3 minutes. I usually burp after those 3-4 minutes. Then it slows down for about 3 minutes and he eats pretty well. Then he starts the slide. He will take a mouth full then pull back to just the nipple and suckle. I think that is when he has had enough. The I move him to the other breast and do the same thing.
Avatar f tn My mother in law gave my daughter formula after she wouldnt nurse after coming home. She was trying to convince me that my milk "went bad" like it had an expiration date. I was so mad but it made me determined and once my milk came in she was back to the breast and was there until I was about 10 or so weeks pregnant this time around (total I breastfed for about 15 months). Hoping I can go a little longer this time.
4628530 tn?1369112686 I go through days at a time of no open abscesses and little pain. A hard lump still exists and my right breast is noticeably smaller almost as if the tissue has been eaten away and I have many scars. I'm hoping these tips can help women new to the forum. INITIAL DIAGNOSIS/TREATMENT: I was given 3 types of antibiotics because the dr. believed it was mastitis that rarely occurs in pregnant women due to the milk ducts preparing to produce milk. I didn't have a fever, so it was not an infection.
108334 tn?1253647995 I will keep the samples I have, BUT I have cupons that expire in June and some in September, should I just go buy that formula and keep it, or give away the cupons?
228463 tn?1216765121 Hi all! I found a lump in my breast this morning and am very scared but trying to hold it together for kids sake. The lump feels to be about nickel sized and when I feel it the nerve underneath is pressed on and causes alot of the same pain in my arm and chest that I have been feeling for a while now. I am substitute teaching for the first time tomorrow and I cannot cancel but am planning to head over to my GYN right after school is out to get the ball rolling for xrays, ultrasounds etc.
Avatar f tn while many drs say cereal at 4 months is OK, for babies on breast milk 6 months is generally recommended. not that cereal would hurt her, but rather because the best way to maximize benefits of breast milk is to give it exclusively. as mysty said, the digestive tract is still developing, so the less foreign things introduced the better. but whether or not you choose to introduce cereal, using it to substitute a meal is not a good idea.
257552 tn?1404606154 I realize that some people develop an allergy to milk and milk based products later in life. I had a coworker (who is now retired) that had various ailments. He was always in the best of spirits though. He had a heart valve replacement, knee replacement, and periodically would contract this or that ailment, some of which he had to be hospitalized for. (He was in his 50s when he retired, one could not tell by his attitude or appearance that he had so many problems).
461781 tn?1285613081 carseats are no-no second hand unless you personally know the original owner and trust their guarantee that it has never been in an accident- even a minor fender bender. Also, carseats actually have expiration dates. i have a second hand changing table, exersaucer, baby gym, infant-toddler rocking seat, highchair, and baby bjorn. Many of my things for older baby/toddler, especially outdoor equipment, are second hand.

Luckily - I have such a big guy...he's so strong...he pulled through this time okay....hopefully there won't be a next time. GNicole - I had an Evenflo Triumph for the 2nd seat..that wasn't used daily...rated pretty was on the top 5 list back in 2004 under dept of transportation safety list....
585414 tn?1288944902 By MELLY ALAZRAKI If gasoline or jobs or milk were in short supply, we'd all know about it. But unknown to most Americans, the country is now in the grips of a life-threatening drug shortage. Medical professionals are quite aware of it, however, and they're deeply concerned. So is the Food and Drug Administration. Unfortunately, the FDA's hands are pretty much tied when it comes to taking steps that could ease this crisis.
Avatar n tn Your boobs are most likely sore from your milk drying up if you are not breast feeding. My SIL had the WORST boob pains during that time!

Avatar n tn I ended up with breast cancer and do not know if it had anything to do with it or not for sure but I suspect it did since it works with the hormones. My friend had noticed a lump too but fortunately it was just a cyst. Once she got off the shots the lump shrunk so with those 2 stories..I just don't know. It was great weight fell off but I will never use it again just because I am not sure...
Avatar n tn I thought at first i must have adult onset asthma but my breathing seems more labored with inspiration than expiration and i know with asthma u have trouble doing both. my symptoms are very simuliar to all of u above....but does anyone hear/feel a click in the throat after "an attack" theres some swellling of the throat that has not yet resolved. my husband has told me he can hear me swallow after a violent attack or even a mild one...and of course i can feel it.
Avatar n tn I seem to have sometimes dull sometimes sharp pains under my breast bone. I get bloated very easily after eating. I burp a lot of stomach gas. Lots of belching ensues. Sometimes I feel like my esophagus swells up and then I can feel my heart beating in my chest, the fluttering and butterfly feeling. Then, this irregular beating in my chest scares me and causes anxiety, then the viscous cycle repeats. The anxiety causes more chest pain, more gas, and more discomfort.
Avatar n tn If you do think it's muscle/nerve related or want to give this a try, make sure you drink at least one glass of milk and one glass of orange juice a day, the minerals and vitamins in the two drinks actually interact to allow for correct muscle bonding and nerve insulation. A deficiency in either can lead to muscle/nerve issues. Good luck! Post if you discover anything new!
Avatar n tn I can not take birth control because of family history of breast cancer. I would not reccommend the Para Gard. I have had severe cramp and horrible monthly cycles. I nver had any kind of health problems or female problems until I used the para gard.
