In brief: 6 months

In the back of the freezer or in a deep freeze with a consistent temperature, breast milk may remain good for up to 6 months.
Avoid placing the milk in the door of the freezer as the temperature will not remain constant.

In brief: 6 months

Refrigerated milk must be used within 24-48 hours, but properly frozen breast milk can be safely stored for up to 6 months.
