    Default How long in freezer?

    Hi all,

    How long can I store ebm in my freezer? Also, if I am mixing it w/cereal, and only need 3 tbs, can I leave the rest of the bag in the fridge for the next cereal feeding?

    Thanks!

    Here is a good reference for storage.

    If the milk that you use came from the freezer, you need to use it within 24 hours. If it was fresh milk then you can refrigerate it for up to 8 days. Hope this helps.

    I was going to post a similar question..... 3 to 6 month in a freezer (according to Kellymom site), that's quite a range !

    I realized that I have a few bags that were placed in the freezer this past July. So they have been frozen ~ 4 months. How do I know that I can safely used them?
