Thread: Storage of thawed milk

  1. #1

    Default Storage of thawed milk

    I am going back to work this week and my mom is keeping my 4 month old. I have a decent supply of pumped milk in my freezer that I plan on giving to my mom to give my son while I am at work. I had planned on thawing out enough for his bottle each day so she wouldn't have to mess with thawing the milk. How long will thawed milk keep in the fridge? I am only going back part time, so I was only planning on thawing the milk the night before, putting the bottle in the fridge and then putting in her fridge when I drop him off.

    Is this ok?

    I have read that it is good for 24 hours.

    It's good for 24 hours. I would suggest giving her 1 bag for her freezer just in case you underestimate need or LO starts a growth spurt. HOWEVER, if she's the kind of person to feed the baby every time he's unhappy, ignore that advice!

    you could move it from the freezer to fridge and thaw it out that way, it takes a day or so i think but it may last longer than 24 hrs
