Re: Storing Breastmilk
In a breast feeding class I took they told me to follow the 3-3-3 rule. 3 hours room temp, 3 days fridge, 3 months freezer. However, I would say that the LeLeche League would be a trusted source.
I have stuck with the 3 hours room temp but has anyone kept it longer than that? I always carry too much when I go out just in case and since even a simple shopping trip often last more than 3 hours, I always end up throwing so much away! Also, I think it is ok to put it back in the fridge even if it has been warmed once or out for a couple hours??
