BTDT Reheat BreastMilk?

Hi ladies,

I have a quick question for you, I am currently pumping my breast milk because it is hard for me to get the baby latched on and it hurt way to much, so I pump every 3hours like the lactation consultant said, I usually pump about 4or5 ounces of milk each time because I will only do it for 10min at a time, anywho I put the breast milk in the fridge and when the baby is hungry I heat it up, sometimes he downs the whole bottle and sometimes he will eat 2 ounces leaving another 2 ounces in the bottle, so I will leave it out instead of putting it in the fridge again, when he does want another bottle or more to eat I will sometimes reheat the milk because it is to cold in my opinion to give to him.. is that ok to do? or should I just toss that milk and give him a new bottle?

P.S. If a couple hours go by I just toss it and get a new bottle....

TIA

Here is what i was told/did with #1:


Freshly pumped milk can stay out at room temperature for up to 8 hours! (I have even heard up to 12, but never did it that
