If lo doesn't finish of a bottle of room temp ebm, I know it says you don't have to dump it but do you have to use a new sterilised bottle, as she has fed from it?

thanks

in a word: no

it's the antibacterial properties of breastmilk that make it OK, so fresh stuff is fine. Probably more sterile than a clean bottle. I wouldn't leave defrosted milk at room temp if I didn't need to though (put in fridge between feeds). The freezing process kills some of the goodness, so it's more akin to formula milk handling.
