Show Notes:

Have you ever wondered “What’s Up?!” with the discrepancy in milk storage guidelines?

It seems like each major healthcare organization picked their own numbers for how many hours/days/years that breast milk can be safely stored.

Today, Heather and Maureen hope to clear the air and dig into the guidelines as well as the evidence behind them. They bring you detailed information so that you can make the safest choice for you and your baby. No more throwing away precious “questionable” milk or resorting to a 100oz milk bath!
