    Default Is the milk bad???

    Good Morning Ladies! Yesterday I did a stupid thing ...(thankfully only ONE stupid thing...) I forgot to put the milk that I pumped in the fridge after work....and didn't see it until just before I went to bed . It was probably out of the fridge for appr. 8 hours...and wasn't cold when I put it in there....I haven't smelled it...but what do you all think? Is it still ok? I had it in the fridge at work....it's cold outside, but the commute isn't far at all (literally blocks).

    Honestly, I'd probably sniff it and give it a taste and if it seemed okay I'd let baby try it. If baby spits it out or acts funny about it I'd toss it. If not I'd figure it's alright.

    If it doesn't smell funky it is fine.

    I would use it too. I keep my milk at room temperature for ~10 hours while pumping at work, never had an issue.
