My sister wants to know...how long can previously frozen breast milk sit at room temperature and still be okay to give my nephew?

Also, once she heats up a bottle of breast milk and say he only drinks 2 ounces out of the 4, can she give him the remainder of that same bottle later in the day? Can you reheat it? Does she refrigerate in between?

She is 3 weeks PP and only has 3 more weeks of maternity and she is trying to plan approrpiately and doesn't want any liquid gold to go to waste.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Some people say you can, some people say you can't.

Honestly, I did. I took out milk I needed the night before, left it in the fridge. If she had milk left over from a feeding, then I immediately put it back in the fridge and used it within 6 hours. My daughter never had problems with it. And at room temperature? I never left it out more than an hour or two. (which was for thawing purposes)
