I attend school full time and I pump around 11:35 until 11:50 I have a class afterwards and do not get home until 1:45ish. My question is when I get home can I store my breastmilk in the freezer still? Let me know asap!

Thanks for stopping by! Yes, putting your breastmilk in the fridge or freezer would be absolutely fine. Breastmilk is fine for 4-6 hours at room temp, 8 days in the fridge and 3-6 months in the freezer. Here's a handy chart that you may want to print out to have on your fridge: http://kellymom.com/bf/pumpingmoms/milkstorage/milkstorage/

Please let me know if you have any additional questions I can help with.
