    Default car traveling w/pumped milk

    This weekend we are going on a trip a couple hrs away. I plan to bring some pumped milk to be used the following day and will bring it in a cooler. Once we get to the destination I will transfer it to the fridge. My husband will be with the baby the next day while I'm at a baby shower for a friend. How long can the bottles stay out of the fridge for him to use during the shower while I am away?

    Wow...10 hours out of the fridge seems like a long time, but that's terrific! It gives me more flexibility for traveling. Thanks!

    once it has been refridgerated? or right after you have pumped it?

    and if you have already refridgerated it, are you going to thaw it?

    I'm going to keep it in the fridge during the weekend and put it in the diaper bag on Sunday for him to use during the shower. So it will have already been refridgerated. I guess it will be "thawing" as it sits in the diaper bag. So, how long can it be in the diaper bag before it goes bad?
