    I've kept it as long as a day before in the fridge. I wouldn't leave it out for more than an hour or so, but that's just my feeling, not based on anything I've read.

    here is something from wholesome baby foods

    Do not leave uncooked or even cooked foods out on the counter at room temperature for longer than 2 hours.

    mix very little then you will not have to waste breast milk.

    Once you've mixed it with bm, it should go by the same times you store bm by....

    The enzymes in the ebm will likely "digest" it if you wait too long. My best suggestion is to wait to mix as close to feeding time as possible.
