after I've thawed frozen breast milk, how long will it be safe to give my baby
I know that once refridgerated breast milk has been thawed, I can use it within four hours, but I"m wondering if this applies to thawed frozen milk.
Frozen breast milk
•Frozen breast milk can be kept for 2 weeks in the freezer compartment of a one door refrigerator, or 3 months in a freezer section of a fridge with separate door.
•If some milk has thawed it should be used within 24 hours. Do not refreeze it.
•Tips for parents: Breast milk should be transported to childcare in an esky with a freezer brick, and placed immediately in the back of the refrigerator upon arrival (or in the freezer if still frozen and to remain so).
Thawing frozen breast milk
•Breast milk can be thawed in the fridge or at room temperature in a warm water bath.
•Breast milk that has been thawed in the fridge but not warmed should be used within 24 hours, and should not be refrozen.
•Breast milk that has been thawed outside the fridge in warm water can be used immediately, or stored in the fridge for up to 4 hours.
Warming Breast Milk
•Breast milk should NEVER be microwaved. It destroys the immunological properties in the breast milk.
•Breast milk should be warmed by standing the bottle in warm water.
•Bottle warmers can be used, but they must have a thermostat control. Bottles should only be warmed in this way for less than 10 minutes.
•Before giving the child a drink from the bottle:
-put the teat/bottle top back on, and invert the bottle at least 10 times
-make sure the breast milk is cool to touch - test by placing several drops on the back of the hand.

money but my condition never got better i was determined to get my life

Use thawed breast milk within 24 hours. But if you don't use it in time don't throw it away! You can add it to your babies bath.
