As long as it wasn’t thawed to liquid, it’s fine!  If it’s all the way thawed out, you have to use what you can in 24 hours.

after you freeze it well again, then thaw and try to feed your baby with one of the bags in a day or two snd see if she/he will take it. Babies know when the milk is spolie and wont eat it if its bad ( they will either turn away or cry a lot while feeding)

@Adeline4:  I read the Womanly Art of Breast Feeding by the la latche league & they say as long as some of the milk is still frozen that its totally okay to re-freeze. Although I don’t agree with some of their breastfeeding theories, i do consider the la letche league to be the authority on breast milk =) you could also call and check with your hospitals lactation consultant or any local lactation consultant if you want a professional’s opinion.
