How long can you freeze or refrigerate colostrum for?
Is it the same lengths of time that apply to breastmilk?
I was told by the breastfeeding specialists from my high risk hospital I delivered my twins at that breastmilk could be stored in the refridgerator for 7 days, frozed in a freezer for 3 months and frozen in a deep freeze for 6 months.
I was not given any different instructions for colostrum, however, as that is the 'liquid gold' as they call it, I would use it immediately or only store it in the refridgerator as freezing it can destroy some of the white blood cells. It's probably always to have your baby consume it fresh as anything would be.
