DP pumps and freezes when she is at work so I and the babysitter can feed DS while she is away. We usually thaw a 6oz bag of milk, which he eats over the course of a few hours. Recently, I read that you shouldn't let thawed breastmilk stand at all at room temperature.

So, should I be feeding DS and then throwing away the rest, defrosting only tiny amounts (I don't quite know how to do this logistically), or is it okay for one defrosted bottled to be used two or three times over the course of a few hours.

I haven't seen any horrible reactions in DS. He does have reflux, so he spits up a lot, so it might be hard to distinguish something related to milk as opposed to something related to the reflux.

Opinions on this?
