    Can I freeze milk that has already been refrigerated for a week?

    You will have to use it as soon as you take it out though since it will be on it's last day.

    It's 8 days, not 3. You are safe to freeze it seriously, just make sure you use it assoon as it thaws when you take it out. Don't let it sit in the fridge for another couple of days.
