Yes, you can keep it in fridge. It can be preserved upto 6 hours, while using it from fridge do boil it twice and use it. You can store it outside in room temperature 3 to 4 hours only.

Breast milk can be stored at room temperature which is about 26 degrees for four hours. In the fridge at 4 degrees for 48 hours and in the freezer at -16 degrees for 3 months. When feeding the baby milk should be brought to room temperature by keeping the milk container in a vessel which has warmed water. Never boil or microwave breast milk as it will kill valuable nutrients.
