I've got a bottle of breast milk that has been in the fridge a couple of days. How long will it keep if I take it out and keep it at room temp? Does the six hour rule apply or is that only for fresh? Any help appreciated

I think of BM being similar to cows milk (which of course it is)
You'll probably be pushing it to last 6hours out of the fridge when it's already 2 days old - can you put it into a thermos flask to keep it cooler? Or a jug of cold water? Or a cool bag with a nice pack in?

Then you'll have to man up and taste test it to make sure it's not turned
(It's not that bad!)

What I'm looking to do us take a bottle up to bed for the middle of the night feed...

I reckon it would be fine. (not expert though)

I'm thinking maybe a cool bag and bottle warmer might be the answer...
