Breast milk if stored at cool temperatures is safe to use up to 24 hours. Direct exposure to sun should be avoided. If you want to store it longer, then freeze it. You can warm the milk slightly but best option would be add fresh milk to the thawed milk, if quantity of thawed milk is very less.

Breast milk can be stored in cool temperatures for up to 24 hours. If you freeze the breast milk, then it can stored for a couple of day. In my personal experience freezing the milk is a better option, if the milk is not to be used within a few days.
