Hello..my son is still in the nicu so I'm constantly pumping. I had to buy another freezer for the garage to keep my milk in because our freezer was getting ridiculously full. It's a regular fridge freezer but its strictly milk in the freezer and we only get into it a couple days a week to put milk in it. The LC at the hospital told me its only good for 6 months in there because it's not a deep freeze. She said they say six months in a regular freezer because you open it all the time. But I don't open this all the time so do you think it will be good for 12 months like a deep freeze? I tried explaining this to her and I don't think she was getting it.
