I am pumping and storing breastmilk as a "just in case". I know it is only good for 3 months. Should I use it at the end of the 3 months if it was not needed? What should I do with it if it is not needed. I feel awful throwing it out. How long should I keep pumping and freezing for?
Thanks in advance.
if its in a fridge/freezer, then the milk should be good for 3-6 months...
one thing you can do is rotate your stash...pull some of the earlier dates out, defrost and use that, then put what you pumped today in the freezer...this way you continuously have a freezer stash, and you are not having to dump what you dont use...
