Frozen milk from 1 week post birth - ok to use?

Bit if a strange question - I've never been able to bf my DC so expressed for him. Am wanting to stop now he is 6 months and start to use my freezer stash ( am lucky to have a couple of months). Anyway was sorting it out today and noticed I have quite a bit of milk from the first few weeks post birth - however it is very yellow, so was, I think, still quite colostrom heavy ( it's not the pure colostrom from the first few days obviously!).

Anyway this may be a stupid question but will it be ok to give to my 6 month old? It isn't that I think it would make him unwell or anything but just wondering if it would have a different composition so maybe wouldn't be fatty enough etc? I can see at about 3 weeks post birth the milk changes to the more usual white milk.

If anyone knows is be very grateful - seems a shame to throw it.

The yellow stuff is fatty I believe - so it's extra rich. smile

I was told that you can only keep frozen milk in the freezer for 6 months, if it is within the time limit then I don't see why not?
