How much do I need to freeze if EP?

Not sure what kind of an answer I can get but curious. If I end up pumping full time for my LO (with some nursing session but nevera full feed) how much would I need frozen for me to stop pumping in a few months and continue to feed BM for at least 1 year? Right now I keep roughly 4-6 bottles of fresh milk in the fridge at all times, each containing 3-5oz each. Currently I have about 358 frozen, ranging from 2-6oz per bag each. I don't want to have to pump every 2-3 hours for the next 8-12 months (LO is gonna be 5 weeks old on Monday) but I don't want to cut back on sessions, lose my supply and not have enogh frozen. Does that make sense? lol Thanks!
