Sometimes I wish there were a definite set rules for such things
I asked my LC at the hospital how long could the fresh ebm be in the fridge before it can then be frozen and still be good. She said not more than 24hrs in the fridge then to freeze. (hope that makes sense)
when reading this article posted on another thread:
I read: "Milk that has been kept in the refrigerator for eight days Transfer to storage in the freezer, or discard. Bacterial growth is not a problem, but milk sometimes picks up odors or flavors from the refrigerator or the container."
What are some thoughts on this? Now I am confused on how long I have. This is an issue for me because I am on call at work and may or maynot get called in. I would rather give ds fresh ebm but I dont want to waste it by keeping it in the fridge and then have to dump it if i do not work in the 8days after i pump :\ So I have been automatically freezing up to this point.
