    Default Time frame

    Okay girls, I need reminded about a couple things. I've been pumping a little to have some milk for when I need my mom to watch Adelyn every once in awhile. I freeze it in the milk storage bags, and then my mom puts it in the fridge to thaw and warms the milk in hot water. Now here are my questions on what I have forgotten.

    How long can milk that's been warmed up be left at room temp? Like if she doesn't finish the whole bottle how long is it good sitting out?

    How long can you store frozen milk in a refrigerator freezer?

    How long is milk in the fridge good for?

    Thanks for the refresher!
