    Honestly, the stuff thats still frozen in the middle should be fine. Was your baby full term? If so then you should be ok to refreeze. Maybe mark the stuff that has been refrozen so you know, if there is a problem.

    The Womanly Art talks about the realistic use of breastmilk. Refreezing partially thawed breastmilk was one of the topics covered. "As long as it has a frozen core, its ok to refreeze it" p308

    Bottom line is you know your baby better. If your little one gets sick from everything, then maybe you should dump it. If not you're probably fine!

    Make the crackers/buiscuits and store them in the freezer.

    Thanks! That makes me feel a little better about not dumping it. DD was 5 days overdue, and seems to be pretty healthy so far. (We'll see what happens when she starts daycare ) I think I'll mark the boxes and save them for when we introduce a sippy cup or for mixing with solids so that they don't go to waste but she's not relying on it to replace a normal feeding.
