defrosting frozen breast milk
My Lo is 9 months and im back at work, ive built up a very good supply of frozen milk but over the month ive been back, as ive been on reduced hours, ive managed to keep up with fresh milk. Tomorrow though i think ill use some frozen milk for the first time as i dont think i can get enough off - plus i have a week off next week so lots of time to replace it.
The advice seems to be that as soon as its thawed to use it - however im worked 2pm-10pm so its for a bedtime feed, and im not sure how long it will take to thaw. Im going to get my mum to take it out the fridge a couple of hours before he needs it to get it to room temp, as he prefers this to cold or warm. Other advice seems to be that its safe to thaw frozen milk in the fridge overnight - which is a good 8 hours in the fridge - presumably it has long since thawed by the morning?!
am just a bit confused and dont want to do my LO any harm - would it be ok to put it in the fridge mid morn, take it to mums in a cool pack and then let her take it out to get it to room temp 2 hours prior to bedtime feed? Does this sound unsafe? Not sure how long it will take to thaw x
