    I was able to take a year and a half off from work with last child and could breastfeed without pumping. This time I have to go back to work asap and will be breastfeeding again. My question is, How long does the breastmilk last when freezing it?

    It depends on how you freeze it. WIC has a chart. I remember that in a deep freezer it's up to six months. fewer months in a fridge freezer and some hours in an ice chest.
