My DS is in the NICU, and two weeks ago, they told me to stop bringing in milk since we had filled up his freezer space. I've been pumping and freezing the milk at home and now our kitchen freezer is completely full of milk. I checked yesterday, and they told me that they still have TONS in their freezer.
By the time he comes home, I will have over 3 weeks of milk frozen. I'm pumping more each time than he eats in a single feeding, so it's probably well over a month's worth at this point.
BM can only be stored in a regular freezer for 3 months, and I don't think I'll need this massive stash by the end of July. DH and I are debating buying a deep freezer, but can't see when we'd need that much milk. Once DS comes home, I will be breastfeeding, but also pumping. I'll be going back to work part time, but will be pumping at work.
How much milk do you all have in your freezer stash? Have any of you just decided that enough is enough and tossed some of it? (or, stopped freezing the milk?)
Am I completely crazy to think of "wasting" this extra milk?
