Hello, how long I can keep milk in room temperature

This answer was rated:

how long I can keep breast milk in room temperature before it goes off?
Dr Owen :


Dr Owen :

Well actually it would be best to use the breast milk within 2 hours -

Dr Owen :

But if you are trying to save it - you can put it in a cooler on 'ice', or in a refrigerator

Dr Owen :

But No more than 2 hours is the suggested time limit for room temperature milk (and that is temperature of 70 to 75 degrees F) - if this is outside where it is WARM - then of course you have to decrease the time that the milk is still good and safe


Thank you
