My LO is a big fan of reverse cycling, so I spent a couple months when he was 4ish months old (last September/October) producing at least an extra 5-10oz/day. These days (he's almost 9 months old), he eats 10oz/day at daycare, and I've reduced my pumping to where I manage to just have an extra 5-10oz/week.
I've been sending frozen milk in on Mondays, and fresh the rest of the week, but I've realized that I have a huge stash that's going to be hitting the 6 month mark starting next week. I know it won't magically go bad overnight, but I also know that at the rate of 10oz/week rotation, I'm not going to get through it all. WWYD?
The only options I can think of so far as as follows:
1) Maybe buy a deep freezer? Is it too late to stick it in there and prolong its life?
2) Start giving LO cups of BM with his solids (we're practicing open cups), and then be totally okay with the spillage because I have too much anyway.
3) Make some baby ice cream with it?
4) ..... ?????
