I've been storing some frozen bm in our freezer in the garage. Today when I went out there to bring in some food from the freezer I notice the bm looked kinda funny. It's got weird polka dots. Here's a picture of it:<br><a href="http://i213.photobucket.com/albums/cc169/moorela09/frozenmilk001.jpg" target="_blank">http://i213.photobucket.com/albums/c...zenmilk001.jpg</a><br><br>
I'd hate to have to throw out all my liquid gold stash. I'm getting really sad just thinking about it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/neg.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="negative">s this normal? Would you feed it to your lo?

Is that just globs of milk fat? I'd let it thaw and taste it or at least smell it. It just looks like the fat settled oddly to me.

Just looks like the start of freezer burn to me. I've used similar milk before for dd2 (exclusively pumped) and she didn't mind. As a pp suggested, I would taste it first.

That's just liquid/fat separation--it gets really apparent in particularly "creamy" batches of EBM. If I froze my afternoon pumps, they always looked like that (the afternoon pumps were always on the low-volume but obviously quite fatty side).

my DD ate many a bag of EBM that looked like that no problem. If in doubt taste/smell it before serving and remember frozen BM never smells as good as fresh and that is normal, it is bad when it smells rotten.
