    Depending on the temp of your 'fridge, you may be able to go 5-6 days (max!!) for milk stored that way. Keep it in the coldest part and open the storage bottles to air as little as possible. Always give it a good sniff before offering it to baby. Your nose will know if it has gone off.....

    I agree with the pp, but one point of clarification. Fresh milk can stay in the fridge for several days, but milk that has been previously frozen and thawed should be used within 24 hours.

    Oh! Yes! absolutely! Sorry that I made the assumption that we were talking about freshly-pumped milk! Thank you for adding that important information!!
