Re: How to use up my stash
How old is your baby? If he's close to a year, I'd try to use up the breastmilk before switching to formula or cow's milk, because the breastmilk provides the optimal nutrition for brain and other development, and that development is happening fastest during the first year. If he's way under a year, then I think I might try to increase the formula a little bit so that the breastmilk lasted longer- provided that there are no lipase issues with your stash, and that the stash isn't nearing its expiration date, and that you have a good freezer and a good electrical supply that isn't going to crap out on you during a winter power outage!
