Restore? Do you mean leave it out, then refrigerate or freeze? If just pumped, yes, that is OK for an hour or so. If it has been frozen, then thawed, no, just throw away what doesn't get used. Fresh milk is OK out for an hour or two, refrigerated for a day or two, frozen milk for a month or two, but should be kept down in bottom of the freezer, away from the door.
