I thought it depends whether the breast milk is kept at roon temperature or in a fridge for frozen. 

As to storing the brest milk in roon temperature, for temperatures 16–29°C (60–85 °F) the optimal storage time is 4 hours, but 6–8 hours may be acceptable for breast milk collected under very clean conditions at lower temperatures in the range.
for temperatures 27–32°C; a storage time of up to 4 hours is recommended.

As to storing the brest milk in fridge, at 4 °C (39 °F) or below, the optimal storage time is 4 days, but 5–8 days may be acceptable for breast milk collected under very clean conditions and stored towards the back of the fridge.
