I believe you're meant to use it within one hour of being warmed. I wouldn't put it warm into an insulated bottle bag myself - I think that's a bit risky. If you take it out of the fridge (and it hasn't been frozen) or it's freshly expressed, it's fine at room temp for up to eight hours. Fridge-cold and straight into an insulated bag might even give you slightly longer than eight hours.
