    Default Oh no!! Wwyd?

    So I thought I left the little cooler bag at work with the milk I had pumped... I didn't remember putting it away when I got home... so thinking it was at work in the freezer didn't really think about it again.... until this am...

    Went to get the pump bag ready for work this am and there it was

    The cooler bag with a cooler pack-- 2 bottles of milk and 2 bags left inside....

    What would you do with the milk?? I pumped at 10, and at 130-- it was in the freezer from 10-130 but then it was out all night... the milk wasn't warm.. it has finally cooled off at night around here....

    so.... would you throw it or keep it... I haven't smelt it yet.. I quick threw it in the fridge to get ready for work.........

    I would smell and taste it, and use it immediately provided it passed the first two tests.

    yup. I've left milk overnight and used it the next day if it didn't taste bad. i think different people's milk turns more/less quickly than others. fingers crossed it's okay Mama!

    And if it was in the cooler, it wasn't at room temperature for almost 24 hours. I've done it too. I left a feeder in the cooler bag for 24 hours and still used it. It was fine.

    Taste it. If it tastes fine it is fine.
