    Can I use this breastmilk?

    Advertisements
    Were trying to get Carter to take a bottle, so we thawed out 2 ounces last night and put it in a bottle. We come back and hes asleep.

    I put it in the fridge right away, but I dont want to waste it. I can warm it up and he can have it today, right?

    according to kellymom, you can re-use thawed milk up to 24 hours after thawing.

    That's good to know. I've always been so paranoid about that.
    Are you trying to give him a bottle?? I think you say he usually would not take it right?

    Yeah he doesnt take one

    But Ive found the most amazing babysitter, and it would be awful nice to go out to dinner with my hubby

    He took a little bit the other day, but it was juice. He needed juice because he was SO constipated, and he wouldnt take the sippy that day. I know youre not supposed to give juice in a bottle, but we had to cuz the poor little guy couldnt poop He took like 2 oz! Now Ive gotta see if he can take the breastmilk in it, maybe he decided bottles arent that bad!
