bottling breast milk? im a ftm lol

So how long can you freeze your breastmilk in the bottles for, like how long will they be good for? And how do you unfreeze them? How long is the bottled breastmilk good for when your taking a couple with you for when your going to places for the whole day? Lol please don't judge, I'm honestly super curious..
