In brief: Yes

Only heat it once to thaw and then use.

In brief: Yes

Yes! just be sure not to refreeze it.
Once breast milk has been thawed, it should be consumed. Avoid putting the bottle back in the fridge or the freezer to avoid the potential of bacteria growing in the milk and causing stomach problems with your baby.
