I have a ton of frozen breast milk from when DS#2 was in the NICU 2 months ago. I was building up my supply and he wasn't eating as much as I was making. Anyhow, I know I have to use it within the next month or two, but am EBFing and haven't had many occasions to use it. Seems like if DS#2 drinks it from a cup or bottle I still have to pump so as to not mess up my supply.<br><br>
I hate to see all my hard work wasted. Can I use it in the garden somehow? Would the cats drink it? I offered some to DS#1 (age 3) and he didn't like it. I have mixed it in smoothies for him, though. I know it's lost a lot of its immunity builders, but it's probably still nutritious, right?<br><br>
Ideas?

Sure, it's still nutritious. You can cook with it--I know I've seen a ton of breast milk recipes out there. Also, if it'll last that long, you can mix it in your babe's table foods when it's time to work on solids. My kids loved breastmilk mashed potatoes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
