Has this changed?

I have just looked up how long you can store breastmilk in the fridge for. I thought that it was for 3-5 days, but then I did a double take when I saw this:

if it has changed, when did it change? Maybe I am just confused??

Yes it changed. Just sometime last year I think. I think they wanted to be more careful.

Yep, 72 hours as the recommendation came in mid-last year just after I finished my training.

Didn't know that, sounds like it is time I bought a new fridge magnet as my current one is 7 years old.

I didn't know that either. Mine never lasted nearly that long, but that's new.
Is that because its unpasteurised?

PS I really want to capitalist the P in Pasteurised, but it looks weird with a prefix that way.

I think this came out of the revised NHMRC guidelines.

I saw you had posted and I got excited that you could resolve my capitalisation conflict. :(

I don't think pasteurise is capitalised. It's just an ordinary verb.

But it originated from a proper noun.

But it isn't one now, through extensive usage.

definitely a normal verb. Just because it happens to have the name of the bloke who invented the process in it, doesn't mean it needs a capital. Remember only proper nouns or first letter in sentance get a capital, no matter how twitchy you get :)

Maybe we can come up with a list of words that used to have capitals and now don't? Might make Penguin feel better :-D
