    Hi,

    I have just started using expressed milk to feed my lo and he has just had half a bottle which I expressed today but was stored in the fridge. Is it ok to feed him the rest of it later? Can I put it back in the fridge or leave it at room temp?

    I always put it back in the fridge and served it again within 4 hours

    As far as I know it's not really recommended to reuse leftover milk, but it's your call. I'm sure it would be fine in the fridge for a few hours, just give it a sniff before you feed your LO. It goes rank pretty fast at room temperature so I wouldn't leave it out.
