    hot water from the faucet warms it in about 5 min or so... ive read not to microwave BM. i also have a parents choice bottle warmer, maybe you could buy one of those. theres a car one too!

    if im out and about i get hot water from a restaurant or starbucks and its super quick. just a few min.

    after i pump. if its going to be long term storage i freeze my BM. it lasts for about 3-4 months frozen. for short term it put it in the fridge and it lasts for about 7 days.

    My DH boils water in the teapot, then pours that into a bowl. Then he puts the bag of BM into it and "steeps" it (so that it's not constantly in boiling water). I guess that warms it up pretty quickly.

    it depends on the temperature inside the room where it is.

    I warm it in warm water, never microwave breast milk.

    After pumping I pour into freezer bags (max of 6 oz per bag) and lay flat to freeze. I use the lansinoh brand.
