ASIP Storage After Milking?
I want to ask, if the frozen milk that has been thawed is taken out of the refrigerator until it’s no longer cold, can I put it in the bottom refrigerator again? Then how long can it last?
Hello, Ms. Afriliyaa ...
Breast milk is the best intake for babies. ASI has many benefits, including to support the baby's immune system so that it is stronger, makes children smart, strengthens the relationship between mother and child, and many other benefits. Nowadays, where more and more mothers are working or doing activities outside the home, expressing milk is a solution so that mothers can still give milk to their children so that the nutrition and benefits of breast milk can still be given. To maximize the nutrition of breast milk (ASIP), the mother needs to know the correct management of breast milk.
After milking, ASIP storage should be adjusted according to use. ASIP that is planned to be given in the near future should be stored in the lower refrigerator (which will not freeze). In this place (the lower refrigerator, with a minimum temperature of 4 degrees Celsius), ASIP will be able to hold up to 3 days. Whereas if ASIP is planned to be used not in the near future, the mother can store it in the freezer, so that ASIP can last up to 6 months. In addition, mothers can also store ASIP at room temperature (not put in the refrigerator), but ASIP will only last up to 4 hours.
Meanwhile regarding your question, ASIP which comes from the bottom of the refrigerator (not freezer) that has been removed from the refrigerator but has not been warmed, can survive at room temperature for up to 4 hours. If 4 hours have passed, the ASIP should not be used. If the ASIP has been removed from the refrigerator but has not reached 4 hours and has not been warmed, then the ASIP can be re-stored in the lower refrigerator (may not be put in the freezer), and then it will only last for up to 24 hours. All you need to always remember is to avoid putting ASIP back in the fridge after ASIP has been warmed.
