    Actually the shelf life in a deep freezer is 6-12 months according to kellymom.com for full-term babies.

    For moms that use bottle warmers to scald their milk, there was a recall today on the Munchkin bottle warmers. Here is the info:

    Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    Fresh milk is ALWAYS better than frozen, frozen milk is preferable to scalded, and scalded milk is better than none at all. =)

    Freezing and/or scalding BM does change the properties of BM, that...

    Take your oldest bag of milk, thaw it out, and taste it. It's really the only way to find out for sure.

    I see you are in Riverside. That is where I deliver mail for USPS, in the Canyon Crest...

    I get them at GNC. They're a bit more expensive (about $9 for a 30-day supply) but SO WORTH IT because now I don't have to scald my milk each day. I only scald what I put in the deep freezer, or...

    I personally prefer to use a thermometer, that way it doesn't get overheated and kill too much of the good stuff. My pasteurized BM never gets a skin on it. I use a quick-read thermometer I got...

    Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    The heating is most likely making the smell more prominent, not making it go bad. My milk smells sweet until you taste it, then you want to run for the toilet. LOL It's just hard to smell the...

    Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    Oh, I completely agree. I'm not comfortable with just rinsing stuff off and using it again. I really don't have access to running water out on my mail route, and I'm not real thrilled with the...

    I have a fast metabolism too, no matter how much See's candy I eat. LOL I don't know if that has anything to do with lipase levels or not.

    Thanks so much for the link!

    When I tested my milk it's starting to get that soapy taste at the 13-hour mark. It wasn't nasty, but it was definitely there. At the 24-hour mark my milk is just...

    Bottles that fit PISA

    Hi, I was hoping to find out what brand/type of bottles the other pumping mommies have found that fit the Medela PISA. I'm particularly trying to find glass, but all suggestions are most welcome.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I've got a vehicle adapter, so I'm set to still use my PISA. My route is residential in a nice area full of doctors and nurses, so if they get offended seeing me pump...

    That would definitely be good for me if my milk can't pass the 12-hour mark without turning nasty. So far it's holding, I check it again in 2 hours and I hope it makes it!
