How can you tell if your frozen breast milk is freezer burned? I have a huge stash but I don't want to send some to the babysitter's that freezer burned. How can I tell?

If there is no air touching the milk (ie milk is stored in breastmilk freezer storage bags and the air was squeezed out) there is a slim chance the milk is freezer burned. But if there is air touching the milk, the freezer burn would make the top layer of milk look almost dehydrated and have a layer of "snow" on it. It may also appear a lighter or whiter shade.<br><br><br>
As long as proper milk storage guidlines were followed the milk is safe for baby, though the taste may have been altered.<br><br>
Hope this helps.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
