My baby (now 4 months) was a sleepy eater in the beginning, so I did a lot of pumping to ensure a good supply for him. I thought what I pumped would be good for 6-12 months, at which point I'd start adding it to food. But today I saw that it's best in the freezer for 4 months. Is this true? If so, what's the best way to give this to a baby who is almost never away from me? He does get 1 bottle per day to help with weight gain. Should I start giving him frozen milk and freezing what I currently pump when he gets the bottle? Any help is appreciated. I don't want it to go to waste!
(Note: The milk is stored in a refrigerator/freezer in our basement. It is only opened once every few weeks, if that makes a difference.)
