So, I don't have much of a freezer stash but have some (about 40oz)...<br><br>
A friend of mine invited me to dinner Monday for an early Christmas present and she knew I needed out of the house for a bit. I told Dp that she would take a bottle but you had to hold her a certain way, shush a bit in her ear and she wuold take it....<br><br>
I was gone 3 hours....<br><br>
I nursed her twice before I left and she was sleeping....she has been going 3-4 hours usually...<br><br>
Anyhoo, I got home and she was quite unhappy so I nursed her (had a glass of wine when we first sat down 3 hours earlier) and she was happy as a clam. He said she wouldn't take it from him etc...<br><br>
I went over and checked the bottle (just in case) and smelled the milk and it smelled sour.....it had only been frozen for 18 days...that's prolly why she wouldn't take it....I've only given her a bottle here or there for fresh pumped from the tap and not thawed and heated (he warms it in a bowl of water)...<br><br>
So, why would it taste/smell spoiled???? And if that 5oz did, is it all going to taste like that????<br><br>
TIA

I just posted this a few days ago. you probably need to scald your milk before you freeze it, it sounds as though you have a higher fat content. it does smell bad, but its not assuming all proper precautions have been taken. I would mix it with fresh milk or scald the stuff that you pump from now on. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I've been checking into this issue myself, here's a link to a thread I got from an LLL leader about scalding milk using a bottlewarmer:<br><br><a href="http://forums.llli.org/showthread.php?t=297&page=4" target="_blank">http://forums.llli.org/showthread.php?t=297&page=4</a><br><br>
I liked this better & found it easier than stovetop, but do what works for you.<br>
PM me if you want just the instructions!

Today was DS's first day at daycare, and when DH went to pick him up, the daycare provider said that Sean barely ate at all. So DH tested the milk himself and he said it tasted horrible. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Then he thawed out a bag I had in my freezer stash and it was bad, too. So I guess we have lipase issues going on too. Totally sucky since I have about 200 oz of frozen milk in the freezer that I now have to dump out.

oh my goodness! that is awful, after you went to all that work to pump it all. check with a LLL leader... maybe there is a way it could still be saved? or no?? I have no idea, although I'll be sure to check on this if I ever have another baby.
