I have not had to do this for Lena yet, but I did with Anna. I EPed, so we did this every day. She took about 30 oz a day, so we thawed milk for the day in the morning before leaving the house by putting the bags of frozen milk in a cup of cold water (so it didn't get warm) for about half an hour to an hour. We then made up the bottles. Early on, they were 3 oz bottles. Lena takes closer to 3.5 or 4 when we give her bottles (she is my little piggy). We also gave the babysitter a bag of frozen milk to keep in her freezer in case Anna got hungrier and she needed more milk. If she had to use that, she would send what she didn't use home with us and we would make sure to use it within 24 hours. That let us be conservative with what we sent and reduce the risk of waste.
