In a deep freeze that is below -10F? Also the milk is frozen right after it is pumped and double bagged or in snappies (snappies | innovative breast milk containers)

I've read 6 months to 1 year, but I've also read 1 year or longer. I'm trying to keep mine under 1 yr in the deep freeze. So far it's been fine at 6 months.

I would say not more than 8-9mo. After that it starts to go down in quality.

The whole thing w/ freezing is that the quality of the nutrition depletes the longer it is frozen. Can't give you specific details but I have read it several times. I think about a year is right. Also, you won't want to give LO JUST frozen EBM, mix it w/ fresh or give every other bottle fresh so they are still getting the antibodies, etc from the fresh stuff.
