Using Breastmilk after 24 hours after frozen

edited August 2016 in May 2016 Moms
I am going back to work tomorrow and put the frozen stuff in the fridge to defrost last night, not knowing how long it would take to defrost. Well, it's defrosted now (12 hours later) and it wouldn't be used until tomorrow (another 24 hours). Technically, it hasn't been defrosted yet for that long.

I don't have much frozen (at all) and this stuff is hard earned for me, so it's not like I would just throw it away. Alternatively, I guess I could just use it today and pump but I'd prefer not to. Also, the milk fat looks different than the refrigerated. Would it still be good tomorrow? Just use the old sniff test? Thx.

  • I'd send it with and tell them it's OK to offer formula if he snubs it, just in case it's gone bad. I've done something similar, only I left the milk outside the fridge too long. It smelled fine and he drank it all. :)

    Might just use it today and pump. As much as I love her, I am done with the whole epic multiple BFs for the day!! Thx for your response! Might be a good test to see how she responds with so many 4 oz bottles.
