Day 36 - When good milk goes bad

Today's tip - Breast milk will last for up to 4 hours at room temperature

If you're pumping, or if you need a little extra supply, or if you're headed out on a trip, knowing how long a bottle can sit at room temperature is important. A safe time frame is usually four hours, and once milk is warmed up it can be refrozen or refridgerated once, as long as it's not sitting out for an extended period of time.

Here are some other important breast milk time expiration periods

I don't believe you should every re-freeze breast milk.

I've read it's fine as long as it hasn't been warm for under 4 hours...but I agree, it's not something you should be doing a lot.
