According to Kellymom, "If baby does not finish milk at one feeding, it may be refrigerated and offered at the next feeding before it is discarded" -- does this apply to thawed frozen milk even if it's been warmed or just thawed?
For instance, my daycare provider thaws what she anticipates using the next day overnight (usually 3 bags of 4 oz). She'll pour the whole bag into a bottle b/c my LO will take anywhere from 2.5-4 oz at each feeding. I've been having her discard whatever is not used, but because we don't have a huge reserve, I'd love for her to be able to re-use what's not consumed if it's safe. Based on the above it sounds like she could use leftovers at the next feeding if she refrigerates it? Does this apply if the milk was thawed then warmed or just thawed?
