<p>I have a decent amount of milk frozen and I was considering donating it to Eats On Feets ....but I don't want to offer if my milk is too old. I have a stash from June of 2010-Nov. 2010. I know November is ok- but what about June?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Also--my little guy always drank it, but I think that I have excessive lipase in my milk because it doesn't taste/smell great after its been frozen, or sitting in the fridge for more then 1 day---certainly different then when freshly expressed. Not sure if donating that sort of thing is a good idea? Its the typical waxy soapy taste/smell that people describe with excess lipase- although I never did anything with the expressed milk to "fix" it because my son didn't seem to mind.</p>

<p>I just don't want to offer a crappy "product" to anyone! :)</p>

<p>Oops- I should have mentioned that it's in a freezer/fridge combo- not a stand alone.</p>

<p>I'd still use it if it didn't smell or taste rancid. :)  I think for fridge/freezer it is 6 months,</p>

<p>kellymom says 3-6 months for full term health children.  <a href="http://www.kellymom.com/bf/pumping/milkstorage.html" target="_blank">http://www.kellymom.com/bf/pumping/milkstorage.html</a></p>

<p>she also says "Breastmilk is not spoiled unless it smells really bad or tastes sour."<br>

<p>One book I have says 6 months in a regular freezer, 12 months in a locker freezer. But one book says, it can freeze for maybe up to a few years, although some nutrients may be lost it can still be used if not obviously spoiled.</p>
