9020620 tn?1409884412 Did you heat it up? I was told you can't reuse breast milk or formula after its already heated.
Avatar f tn I'm a ftm and wanted to know how long after taking out refrigerated breast milk and warmed up stay good?? I know the dr said once baby eats out of it its only good for about 1hr bc of the bacteria but of baby hasnt eat out of it and has been warmed up how long does it last good?
Avatar n tn i'm not exactly sure but i do know the colder the better, the warmer the quicker it spoils, my daughters ped. said 7-8 hours around 66 degrees (room temp.
Avatar f tn I make sure baby is an excellent breastfeeder for about 2 weeks before I introduce the bottle with expressed breast milk. Both my babies did fine with this approach. I also use the Playtex bottle system. It's inexpensive and my babies have done well with it. Good luck! Breastfeeding is a joy!
7656727 tn?1404157447 If you want to pump and feed right away without nipple confusion, look into feeding with a dropper, spoon, or cup instead! Messier to be sure but that way baby can still get food without refusing the breast. I would still give it a minimum of two to six weeks before introducing other feeding methods if you can!
Avatar f tn Our hospital hands out flyers with breast feeding and milk storage tips when you leave the hospital. I breastfeed but my little one didnt take a bottle so i cant help you with the tips! There are lots of guidelines though like how long in the fridge and or freezer and how long at room temp!
12226398 tn?1424524461 Is it formula or breast milk? If formula just use warm tap water (if you are able) but if breastmilk you can heat a bowl of water in the microwave and then set the bottle in the not use microwave to heat bottle directly for either!
Avatar f tn ll have to use bottles to feed either formulated milk or breast milk. Do you recommend buying a bottle warmer and sterilizer? If so, what brand do you recommend?
Avatar f tn He never minded one bit, accepted just fine that anything that came from a bottle was cold (as opposed to body temp). When I pumped breast milk and had it for him in a bottle, I gave that to him cold as well. No complaints from him. Anyway, moving him to whole milk (and now 2%) was no sweat in terms of the milk's temperature, as he was already used to it straight from the fridge. It sure saved a lot of time, too, not having to heat formula in the middle of the night.
435139 tn?1255460391 If there is a rancid smell from high lipase (enzyme that breaks down milk fats) activity when the milk has been chilled or frozen, the milk can be heated to scalding (bubbles around the edges, not boiling) after expression, then quickly cooled and frozen. This deactivates the lipase enzyme. Scalded milk is still a healthier choice than commercial infant formula. If you or your baby has a thrush or yeast/fungus infection, continue to breastfeed during the outbreak and treatment.
Avatar f tn I'm doing research about storage for breast milk. I want something that's cost effective and will work. I'm not looking to create a huge stash of frozen milk because I don't have the space in my freezer nor do I have a deep freeze (yay apartment living). I have looked into the disposable bags. What a money sink. Plus the reviews I read do not put much faith into me using them. I came across a mom's blog about using mason jars.
Avatar f tn Agree just pump and baby will still get the breast milk. The more u pump the more milk u will produce.
Avatar f tn I pump and nursed and it work out great,,, I pumped 4oz each breast,, I had a double pump and it worked great,, i started when baby was a week or so old and I stored a lot of milk. I plan on breast feeding with this baby..
Avatar f tn The * Avoid heating breast milk and infant formula over the stove or microwave in plastic; dangerous chemicals are more likely to leach when you heat in plastic. * To avoid bacteria, look for scratches in plastic bottles. * Avoid plastic bottles that have decorations printed on the inside. These can come off into formula when it’s been heated. * To avoid shards of glass ending up inside the bottle, glass bottles with cracks and chips should be discarded immediately.
Avatar f tn That's frustrating... My 1st never took the bottle. I nursed until he was almost 2. But I didn't work, but I could never leave him for more than a few hours. Although, my girlfriend got him to take a Nuk bottle. A few tricks... 1st are you pumping, so it's breast milk in the bottle? Formula tastes very different. You cannot be in the room, when he's getting the bottle (you should not be trying to give it to him), babies know the difference , they can smell mommy-mom milk.
Avatar f tn You're fine. The pull date on the carton of milk is for the convenience of the grocer, not because the health department has come along and deemed all milk to go bad at that point. If it is not sour it is fine. In fact, even if it were a little sour tasting, as long as it had been kept refrigerated, it would probably be safe to drink from a bacterial point of view, it would just taste bad because it had gotten old.
Avatar f tn t finish her bottle I put it in the fridge then heat it up again for her next feeding. But she tricked me, she was acting hungry so I heated it up but when I got to her she had went back to sleep. Can I put it back in the fridge and heat it up again when she actually is hungry?? Or is that a bad idea to heat it twice??
Avatar f tn I eat it, but try to span it out, i think of youre 34 weeks along and nothing has happened that you will be alright.

3126253 tn?1345384121 They are making these things called milkeez that you wear while your out they hold up to 2oz of milk because if you have alot if milk breast pads don't always work. Also invest in a wash rag i know it sounds funny but fold it over and use that as a pad,, it soaks up more.
Avatar f tn and today i gave it too him but its very watery. is that normal for breast milk. he usually has milk run out of the corner of his mouth a little bit and its very white but when i gave him the bottle that had been in the fridge it was more clear and watery. i feel like its not as good as if i just feed him from my breast.
Avatar f tn When will you start to get milk in your breast? I am 31 weeks and have yet to get mine, it makes me nervous cause I plan on breast feeding.
Avatar f tn Generally it is dangerous because there can be hot spots within the milk that you can't detect by touching or squirting it on your wrist. Also, any plastic bottles can release nasty chemicals when heating, so glass is better for that. Finally, if you're exclusively formula feeding you can use refrigerated or room temp water if baby will accept it - no heating is required. It may put baby off of nursing, though, so I wouldn't try it then.
