How long is frozen breastmilk good for?

I have ebm in the freezer. How long is it good for? Our freezer is self contained, not inside the fridge. I've read 3 months and I've read 6 months. Don't know who to trust or what to believe. Help.

Depends on how cold your freezer is. My handy Ameda fridge magnet says:

6+ months if in the Deep Freeze at 0F or less
3-4 months if in Refrigerator style freezer (self contained) at approx 0F.

If in doubt, just smell or taste it.
