I have breastmilk from 11/20/09, Do I toss it?

Yeah, it's too old, right? Regular freezer.

  • Toss it. Medela suggests dumping frozen milk after 3 months unless it's in a deep freeze.

  • I'd thaw it out and smell it just to see. I'd still throw it away though :)

  • The Medela site says nothing of dumping frozen milk after 3 months:


    http://www.medelabreastfeedingus.com/tips-and-solutions/11/collection-and-storage-of-breastmilk


    This is what else I found:


    http://www.llli.org/FAQ/milkstorage.html


    But the majority of what I found says that unless it has been in a deep freezer, 3-6 months. So I concur. Toss it.
