  1. Re: Breastfeeding uncomfortable before period

    I experience sore nipples during ovulation, but not every month. Hmm... am I not ovulating every month?
  2. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    It certainly sounds like you have a lipase issue.

    If you are using the bottle warmer method to scald your milk then you really shouldn't need to start with hot water. The process only takes a few...
  3. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    Scald it in a pot or use the bottle warmer method. I would recommend putting the hot milk in an ice bath to quickly cool it before freezing it.
  4. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    For a long time I used an empty glass relish jar instead of a plastic bottle. That worked great until my hubby put it directly into the ice bath. :) Look in your cabinet, you might have something...
  5. Re: "Sour" smell of thawed bm getting worse?

    It does sound like you have excess lipase. The freezer bags won't make a real difference with that. You'll need to scald your milk BEFORE you freeze it and that will stop it from going "sour."

    Nipple Pain During Ovulation

    My DD is 11 months old and I just got my period back. Several days before my period started I had really sore nipples. It felt like I was back at that newborn stage again!

    I called my LC and...
  8. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    That is a pain! Did your breast pump come with any plastic storage containers? If not, then I would invest in some. It is worth it. If you don't want to scald your milk in them you can just pour...
  9. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    You really do want to cool down your milk quickly after you scald it because bacteria can easily grow at such a warm temp. However, if you are leaving your milk in an ice bath for that long it...
  10. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    Freezing your milk can SLOW down the lipase, but it does not STOP it. So like others have already said, you can't reverse the lipase taste once it has alreadiy started. However, some of your...
  11. Re: In regards to donating BM from pumping..

    I don't know what the "offical" word is on storing multiple days worth of milk in one bag, but I certainly do it all the time! I am very careful about putting the OLDEST milk's date on the bag. ...

  13. Re: Cooking with breast milk – lipase issue

    Have you considered donating your milk to a milk bank? I just got approved as a one time donor. I'll be sending off my 575 oz of icky lipase milk this week.
  14. Re: Need Detailed Instructions on Testing for Lipase

    I didn't discover that I had a problem until I already had over 500 oz of frozen milk collected. Not cool... not cool at all! Here is how I did my lipase test:

    Pump - I think I had about 4 oz...

  18. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    I left my test batch in the freezer for one week. Then I let it thaw, tasted it and put it back in the freezer. I did that again the following week and the week after that. So far (3 weeks later)...
