How long can I keep breast milk that I thawed under the tap at room temperature?

I thawed out breast milk that was frozen. I am not sure how long it will be good for.

We tell our patients that frozen milk thawed more quickly under warm running water should be used in 4 hours. If baby has sipped from the bottle, any remaining milk should be thrown away after 2 hours.
