I was just wanting to know how long you can freeze breast milk?

Hi leanne
I was just wanting to know how long you can freeze breast milk? I cant remember if its 2 or 3 months,and also how long it can keep in the fridge. I cant find my info on it i got from when i had my first bubs. My partner and i are going away for a weekend sometime in the next month or two and our kids are staying with their grandma, I have a 3 month old and i would still like to keep breast feeding for a while and im worried about my milk supply while im away, if i just expess while im away will it be fine?
thanks
Christina

Answer: Hi Christina, You are on the money with the three months. Freshly expressed breastmilk will last for between three and five days in the refrigerator and for up to 3 months in the freezer. Figure 3.9 Storage Times for Breastmilk
