Let ppl say whatever they want. They will always have something to say. Don't stress about it. You both as parents should relax and be happy then only you can concentrate on positives. Check the wt chart to analyse her weight if you are so concerned otherwise if baby is active and dojng good then its should not be your primary concern. As per the chart that I have in front of me, your baby is doing fine :). further she might have picked up some infection that's why she is not able to digest anything. Try giving her ondem baby drops and then feed her after 45 minutes. She should be fine. Ensure that you are taking care of hygiene since you are feeding her expressed milk. Bottles should be sterilised well. Take care!

Yes, true. Once thawed milk cannot be used again. And freshly expressed milk if refrigerated can be used before 24hrs. U can check with your pediatrician too!

Praveen if milk is thawed once and fed to baby then its not advisable to put that milk back into fridge again for re-use. Instead thaw around 30 ml once if not more and give it to baby. I hope I am able to help you.

Hi. Don't re use the left over milk. Instead give small quantities to avoid wasting milk.

Yes, you can store it in refrigerator and use it before 24 to 36 hrs in a well sterilised bottle. If you freeze it in a sterilised bottle then you can use it upto 1 month. If you are at home, then not recommended though.
