Frozen milk shelf life

I have some milk frozen in the separate freezer compartment of my fridge. I have about 30 - 40 oz that's 5.5 months old. I read that frozen milk lasts about 3 months unless stored in a trunk freezer. When thawed, the milk looks, smells, and tastes good. Is it safe to give my almost 9 month old?
TIA

If it looks good, smells good and tastes fine, and has been stored in a freezer that has held it's temperature consistently (even if not a deep freeze) and it is less than 6 months old, I would use it. But that is just
