    5 hours at room temp, 5 days in the fridge, 5 months in the freezer :) Once defrosted it has to be used within 24 hours :) Always give a sniff before using. It'll smell like sour milk if it's gone off.

    Lilyanne - Thanks for the link - I'll be using this down the line in a few months when I have to go back to work.

    PS. Your LO is adorable in that fluffy outfit - is it a lamb?

    If you have a deep freeze it can be stored for up to a year in there. Otherwise I was told 6 months in the regular freezer
