    Unhappy Left milk out over night...

    Hi ladies,
    I pumped yesterday and left the milk sitting out in my basement. We keep our home at 64 degrees at night, do you think the milk is ok? I' so frustrated with myself!

    Thank you, that's what I thought too, but wanted someone else to agree, and my husband didn't.

    Beast milk is is a live food, unlike formula or pasteurized milk, so it can handle more abuse than those foods

    Yeah as long as it doesn't really smell bad, which I have had happen, I would try to use it. I cried every time I spilled breast milk which seemed to be extra upsetting by having low supply.
