    hi there...
    here are the guidelines according to LLL:

    Human milk can be stored

    -at room temperature (66-72°F, 19-22°C) for up to 10 hours
    -in a refrigerator (32-39°F, 0-4°C) for up to 8 days
    -in a freezer compartment inside a refrigerator (variable temperature due to the door opening frequently) for up to 2 weeks
    -in a freezer compartment with a separate door (variable temperature due to the door opening frequently) for up to 3 to 4 months.

    -in a separate deep freeze (0°F, -19°C) for up to 6 months or longer.

    HTH!
