If i remember correctly it’s 4 hours at room temp, 4-8 days in the fridge (mine only lasted 4 days) and 6 months in the freezer. With the expressed milk I would start with 3mls then top up 1/2mls at a time. I don’t know if your nursing too or exclusively pumping but if doing both keep the teat at size 0 to mimic the nipple x

Rule of 6, 6 hours at room temp, 6 days in the fridge and 6 months in the freezer is what I've always been told🥰 x

@Sophie that’s how I understood it as well!
