I would second the PP about not worrying too much about saving a bottle with some cow milk in it.

My two year old is on cow milk and I always put it back in the fridge if she is not done with it, and have never had a problem.

At the year point I stopped worrying about "reusing" liquids. I figured that her immune system is more mature than when she was an infant, and there's no way she is going to finish any liquid in an hour (she is an all-day sipper type). So once we went to sippies, I stopped pitching liquid after an hour, or I would be dumping her sippy all day. I have a couple of friends with kids who like to drink their milk throughout the day, and they do the same. I do put it back in the fridge when it's not in use though.

Have you tried mixing BM with milk yet?
