    Question Refrigerated and then left out 2 hours-good or bad now?

    I refrigerate my BM for a couple hours until I get time to put it in the bags for the freezer.

    Last night I left a bottle with 2 or so ounces out on the counter for some strange reason. I forgot about it and put it back in the fridge once I realized I did it.

    Is the milk safe to drink now? Would it be ok to add to today's BM I pump and then freeze it?

    Thanks!

    I would smell it to see if it was still good and if so use it. I would not freeze it. I would just use it asap
