Freezing milk?

How long is it good for? I havent done it before but I am leaving both my girls with my mom all next week so she will need a ton of breast milk. So I want to start pumping now to get some for her, how long is it good for when you freeze it? I have everything to do it just hadnt had a reason to do it before now.

Re: Freezing milk?

In the freezer compartment of your fridge, about 3 months.
In a deep freezer, 6 months.
