Thread: Storing milk with freezer pack

  1. #1

    Default Storing milk with freezer pack

    I'm traveling on work. I have 2 sets of milk:

    1. pumped milk that I first stored in the little fridge in my hotel room for 14 hrs & then transfred to an insulated storage bag for about 12 hrs & then will trasnfer this to my home fridge when I get home

    2. milk that I stored for about 12 hours in an insulated bag & then trasnfered to my home fridge

    How long do I have to use this?

    I saw that milk in the fridge can be used for 3 days & the milk in a storage bag for 24 hrs. But it wasnt clear what the appropriate time is if milk is stored first in one place & then transfered. Thanks very much!

    I do that all the time. I pump and store in a cooler with an ice pack overnight. Then I move it to the fridge the next morning. It's fine. I haven't had any problems. I'm not sure if that answers your question though..

    I did something similar to what you are talking about when my baby was recently hospitalized. I pumped it and stored on ice because no fridge was available. I sent home some with DH to put in the freezer after it was kept in the cooler for at least 12 hours. It seems to be OK...the baby drank it the other day when I needed a bit of thawed milk.
