Breast milk question!

Hey mamas! I was wondering something. I pumped milk on the way home for work. Left it out for over 4 hours. My question is, how long is breastmilk safe to put back in the fridge after pumping 😫 i don’t wanna waste it

Does anybody know if I heat fridge breast milk once can I reheat a second time? I find conflicting info. Thanks

Hmm... I think as long as it wasn’t refrigerated you can.

666 rule. 6 hours at room temp. 6 days at the back of the fridge and 6 months in the freezer.

As long as it wasn’t refrigerated yet and in closed containers you have 6to 8 hours to get it into the fridge. I did the same thing a while back so I called the lactation consultants at our hospital. This is what she said.

I know the rule is 6 hours out, 6 days in fridge, 6 month in freezer.

The rule is 6 hours if the room is below 70 degrees. If it’s a hot room, more like 4 hours. Smell it and taste it, if it smells and tastes good, it’s fine.
