    Default how long will expressed colostrum last at room temp?

    I am in hospital at the moment had but 2 nights ago and she has wrecked my nipples so I am having a night off and expressing what I can and top up feeding with some formula for tonight. anyway the staff are super busy so thought I'd head to bub hub for some advice while I wait for next feed. if I express some colostrum into a syringe now will it last here in my room for next feed which is in about 3 hrs??

    From memory ABA recommends up to 4 hours at room temp.

    Midwife in my antenatal class last week said 8 hours - I was quite surprised!
