- A: I store mine in lansinoh milk storage bags, easy to use. i defrost it by putting it in the fridge in the morning then heat it when baby wants it. You can keep frozen breastmilk for up to 3 months then once defrosted use within 12 hours. Refrigerated breastmilk (never been freezed) can be stored in a fridge for up to 24 hours.

- How long will my breastmilk stay fresh from the freezer to the fridge?
- Q: I know most of the rules of storing breast milk. And I know that breast milk that has been frozen and thawed can last in the fridge for 24 hours. But does that mean breast milk that has been thawed by sitting in the fridge or breast milk that is being thawed by sitting at room temp.? Because I thaw my breast milk by moving it from the freezer to the fridge and it takes about two days for it to thaw completely, which is past 24 hours.
- A: You should not thaw your breast milk. Heat up water in the microwave for one minute. When you take your breast milk out of the freezer, put it directly in hot water. Then transfer the milk to the bottle. Breast milk from the freezer needs to be used within 24 hours and should not ever go from the freezer to the fridge.
