Storage guidelines are on kellymom.com for you. Also on our Resources sticky at the top of the group.

Sorry, I never remember! I never could keep pumped milk around long enough for it to be a concern; the longest it ever stayed in my fridge was 72 hours (and that is definitely safe).

 I got this from a bf magnet from A Woman's Place Lactation Center

room temp: up to 6 hours

fridge: up to 5 days

Freezer: up to 6  months (Best to store in the back of the freezer otherwise what's in the front should be used within 3 months)

Deep freezer: up to 12 months

Frozen thawed in Fridge: use within 24 hours.

Quoting mommy2mason529:

4-6 hours at room temp, up to 8 days in the fridge, and 3 months in the freezer
