stored milk question

I've been giving my daughter bm from the freezer above the fridge. It is about 9 months or so old. Is it still ok to give or no? I've seen some places say 6 months and some 6-12 in the above fridge freezer. 


Also, out of curiosity, what happens after the amt you're supposed to stop at with the milk? Why is it bad after that?

It is 6-12 months in a deep freezer and 3-6 months in a regular freezer.

You could always use it for all the other good stuff breast milk can do other than baby feeding.

What else can it be used for? I have so much of it and I'd hate to waste it all.

I used my milk for everything from cuts and scrapes to my face for my acne. You can also use it for eye and ear infections. Some even make soap with it.

You could even use the milk for cooking as long as it isn't spoiled.
