Can the pumped out bm still be fed to baby after 2 hours? As I pumped out but forgot to put in the fridge earlier.
I will smell and taste it first to see if it is still consumable
Hi, depending on the conditions of the place that the milk was stored in. 4 hrs is based on 25 degrees. So if it is in the day but in a cool room or in the shade, i think i would still try? Frankly i also sometimes pump when i am outside put in my handbag and use within 2 hrs to give baby while i am walking about in mostly air-con places. Not likely to spoil so fast but just that nutrition content is lowerRead more
Personally I won't give to baby after two hours as our weather is so hot, bacteria may be breeding already. Do you want to take a risk on that? In fact many people recommend that at our room temp milk should only be kept for 45mins to 1 hour at room temperature. Of course the milk may still be ok but like I said do you want to take a risk??Read more
Do a taste test first to see if breast milk has turn sour, in our humid weather I would rather not give it to LO though.
- 1. Do I need to clean my nipple with water before breastfeed? - 2. For direct latch, each boob feed how long? (Newborn babies should breastfeed 8–12 times per day for about the first month?) - 3. How do I know baby is drinking how much breast milk if I'm latching? - 4. Milk storage bag, eg 200ml bag but I only have 100ml milk pumped, do I put the filled bag in chiller or freezer? Can I top up the same storage bag? (is it put 1st pumped milk in chiller, can combine 2nd pumped milk once both milk reaches same temperature then add into storage bag and store in freezer, all to be finish combining within 24 hours)
- I have 'dug' out small amount of avocadoes for my baby yesterday & put in a closed lid container & put in e fridge. Intended to feed baby but totally forgot abt it. Can i still give it to him today? The other half of e avocado i wrapped it in a cling wrap & put in fridge. Can it still be consumed today?
