    Default frozen milk...

    how do you thaw it out and how soon do you have to use it after thawing it?

    thaw in the refrigerator, and all guidelines say to use within 24 hours. in practice in my family we could stretch that a little bit, but it never re-heated (for a 2nd feed) without spoiling. it'll be obvious when it's spoiled.

    I thaw under running warm to hot water. I prefer to thaw in the fridge, but I forget

    you can also use cool water - that way you won't kill any of the goodness. thaw in refrigerator is the best.
