    Default Frozen for more than 3 months

    I have ~ 50 ounces of milk that I placed to freeze in May-June. So they have been in there 4-5 months. I would hate to throw them away, but would rather if they are bad. Kellymom web site said frozen milk can be kept 3-6 months... but why such a range? What does this range depends upon? How do I know if the milk if ok or not.... Any ideas? Thanks

    I think it depends on the individual mom's milk. With my first dd, my milk lasted in the freezer at least 3 months. With second dd, no such luck. I had to toss over 200 oz - it had all gone bad in little over a month, sometimes less.

    do you have a deep freeze?
    They keep things much cooler then the freezer on top the fridge.
    And if milk is stored in the door it will go bad sooner because its warmer by the door because of opening and closing of the door.

    I could tell mine was bad because it smelled horrible - rancid even - almost like vomit - it was so gross.
