I am going to be away from the house for a bit and no where near any place that I can thaw milk, but my baby will need to eat a couple times while out. So, how long once I thaw milk and keep in my diaper bag can I give to my baby? I already know all the storing rules and I don't plan to refrigerate if he doesn't get to the 2nd one. I just need to know what the limit of use is for thawed milk that has been in a diaper bag.

I believe once it is warmed up it is only good for 1-2 hours. I believe if you don't warm it but keep it in a cooler you can use it up to 24 hours as long as it stays cold. One thing you can do is if you are going somewhere where there is a bathroom is to warm the milk up by running warm water over the bag until milk is warm.
