Mixing Breastmilk Help Please

I pump and feed my baby from a bottle. I was wondering if it's alright to mix br___tmilk from different pumping sessions (refrigerated or frozen) and feed him at one feeding? What I do now is I warm the milk and don't mix the portions (I have small amounts in separate bottles) but it would be so much easier if I could just pour it all in one bottle and feed him... thanks.

I would think that it would be OK to mix milk from the same date, as long as you don't mix refrigerated with thawed stuff. If you just refrigerate it, it will keep 5-8 days (everyplace says something different), but if you thaw it, that will only keep for 24 hours, so don't mix the two.

If your baby is going to eat the different dated milk during the same feed. I would think it's alright to mix the milk as the baby will consume it anyway.
