The Effect Of Breast Milk That Is Left For 3 Minutes Outside The Refrigerator?
at night, like this my wife has expressed quite a lot of breast milk and then stored it in the freezer but the problem in my refrigerator is that frost occurs very quickly in the freezer until the breast milk bottle can’t be taken and the freezer door can’t be closed tightly, for that I pull out the refrigerator for 4 hours so that it blooms the ice melts a little, after the ice melts a little (there are still ice flowers) then I arrange the breast milk from the oldest to the new date, because of my ignorance I take out the breast milk for a while from the refrigerator for less than 3 minutes so that it can be arranged according to the date. The question is whether the asip can still be used? For how long huh?
Good morning Harji, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The storage of expressed breast milk often raises questions, especially about how long expressed breast milk can last. For more details, see the list below:
Breast milk stored at room temperature (25OC) will last for 6 hours Breastmilk stored in a cooler with an ice bag, will last for 24 hours Breastmilk stored in a refrigerator chiller with a temperature of at least 4OC, will last for 5 days Breastmilk stored in a freezer refrigerator, at -18OC , will last 6 months
So in your case, if it freezes and frosts appear, the milk should last up to 6 months. If you want to know more, you can click the following link to our article on Storing Expressed Breast Milk. So, hopefully useful.
