Re: What shoud I do with the milk???

It's good for a few months, longer in a deep freezer.

Quote:
Frozen Milk (Do not refreeze! Store at back, away from door/sides)

Freezer compartment inside refrigerator (older-style) -- 2 weeks
Self-contained freezer unit of a refrigerator/freezer -- 3-6 months
Separate deep freeze 0F / 19C -- 6-12 months

These guidelines are for milk expressed for a full-term healthy baby.
If baby is seriously ill and/or hospitalized, discuss storage guidelines with baby’s doctor

My hands and brain weren't working correctly. I didn't mean to post that it wasn't good -- the "not" snuck in -- I fixed it

vickie- Nope. Its 6-12 mos. depending on the temp. & the frequency the freezer is opened. (The cold air escapes & the temp. fluxuates when its in frequent use)

Re: What shoud I do with the milk???

I had to throw away almost a freezer full (I had a major oversupply) because ds wouldn't drink it, dd didn't and still won't take a bottle, and I couldn't donate it because I had taken zoloft at the time I pumped all that milk out. It still makes me sick to my stomach.

Re: What shoud I do with the milk???

I haven't read all the replies so I hope I'm not repeating. I think you should use it for cooking or put it in your kids' cereal. Don't throw it out! Its probably just fine!
