what about frozen BM

From what I have read it is just fine to reheat and reuse fresh breastmilk, but what about frozen (this is for the future). If dd doesn't eat the entire bottle can I reheat or do I need to toss?

BTW, everyone has convinced me that my supply should be fine and I am going to drop down to 5 pumps a day (dd is 18 weeks old). I am so excited, but kinda scared. Thanks everyone for your great knowledge.................

Most of the guidelines about how long milk is good vary slightly for different people. I think this is one of those things you just have to use trial and error on. Remember to use it within 24 hours of taking it out of the freezer!
