Hey Ladies,

I used to frequent this board often. Hope you all are doing well. I have a question for you. I got called into jury duty today and dh stayed home with the girls. I have frozen breastmilk in the deep freezer that he thawed out by the bag as he needed them. When I got home, he had 2 ounces still in a bottle. I read that once you thaw out breast milk, you have to use it within 24 hours. Is this a very strict rule? I've already had to toss about 5 ounces of milk this summer because it's gone past the 24 hour rule and it just seems so wasteful. Wanted to check with you ladies because I believe you all are the experts! Thanks!


~Thank you GraysMama for my beautiful siggy~

I wouldn't use it much past 24 hours after thawing, but you can also smell and taste it to see if it's still good. The 24 hours starts after it's done thawing, so I know my fridge takes forever to thaw something so its a bit more than 24 hours from the point when I take it out of the freezer and move it to the fridge.
