Okay I have a question. How long is thawed breastmilk good for?
DH unfroze FOUR packs (5-6 oz each) of BM to help bottle feed because he always forgets the night before, so he hasn't been feeding Des in the middle of the night because of this (he usually does a middle of the night feeding while I do the late night one and morning one). Anyway I've been BFing instead of bottle feeding (except the few times I've been out and about) and DH only gives him maybe 2 bottles a day, usually consisting of 2 1/2 oz each (maybe 3). So really he needs one bag unfrozen a day.
Anyway, I know you can't (or aren't suppose to) refreeze the BM. I've read a few things that say it has to be used within 24 hours, but I've also read 48 hours, 72 hours, and even 5-7 days. How long would you ladies leave it in the fridge before ditching it (:crybaby:)?
I know I can always pump more and freeze more but I hate dumping it.
