if you continue to offer it would be unexpected for him to wean before 2 and bm is only good in a freezer for 6-12mo so I'm not sure how much help it would be

Milk in the deep freeze is still only good for a year. Kellymom.com has excellent articles on pumping and storage, and probably something on how breastfeeding affects allergies.

Are you donating to a milk bank? Did you look into going directly to a mom? I once looking into a milk bank but I do think its right the process the crap out of the milk then charge between $3-$5 an oz to parents that need it.

Remember in the deep freeze it only lasts 12 months from when you pump it!

If you continue to offer the breast MOST kids will nurse til 3
