    Default Adding Milk to Previously Pumped Milk.

    So I read somewhere that as long as it's within 24 hours, you can add freshly expressed milk to refrigerated milk.

    Is this true? Should I cool it in the fridge first and then add? So many places say so many different things!

    Cool it, then add. Just be sure to go by the "due by date" of the oldest milk.

    Crap! I haven't been doing this. I didn't think it mattered. Will it be bad to give her what I have already stored? I wasn't cooling what I pumped when adding it to the bag that I started that same day. Let me know! This is over a week supply.

    Thanks,

    I do not always cool it first and have not had a problem. Just smell it before you use it to see if it has turned. I think the concern with cooling it first is mainly when adding preshly pumped milk to frozen milk (you do not want to partially thaw the frozen milk with warm milk because this can cause bacteria to grow).
