Freezer stash expiration?

What on Earth am I supposed to do with my freezer stash that is about to expire?

I read a few different places that it shouldnt be kept for longer then 6 months in the freezer but I tear up a little every time I think about just throwing all that liquid gold away!

Mix it into foods for the kids.
Smoothies, cereal, mix it into smashed food to make it creamy.

Re: Freezer stash expiration?

you can keep it up to 1 year if it is in a deep freezer, 6 months if it is a regular freezer.

another option is to start using some of it and then refreeze the new stuff.

Also, depending on where you live you can donate it to a milk bank for NICU babies or there are Facebook groups or online mommie groups that will take your milk for their babies, just google

Use it! Bottle feed it and pump and freeze new stuff. I would much can rather pump and replace than throw away. How much do you have?

I probably have 2 months of pumping once a day worth maybe more. I thought about making purees for the lo but if it is about to expire then my purees will expire too.

I know the feeling seeing all that hard work go to waste is painful. Maybe put it in a deep freezer?

My premie and I had to rely on donated milk. Real life saver. Literally. Eats on Feets and Human Milk for Human Babies to get connected.
