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

    I think it depends on how much milk you have available and how much you can freeze. It's true fresh is better than frozen which is better than scalded. However, I would look at this from the big...
  2. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    I'd like to encourage all new members of our club,

    DO NOT THROW OUT YOUR HORRID TASTING FROZEN MILK SUPPLY.

    At least not until you have time to consider your options. Maybe you can use it in...
  3. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    I handed my toddler a bottle with horrid milk in it once. He drinks it like a cup, not a bottle--no nipple. Since then he has refused to drink any of my expressed milk, even if I had just pumped it....
  4. Sticky: Re: Ideas for use of 'bad' milk? (yogurt??)

    Somewhere, possible kellymom.com I found recipes to make soap out of breastmilk. I never did it, but it's an option.

    I also did not throw out my milk. I am saving for a baby we hope to adopt. My...
  5. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    I wondered if my high lipase was from taking DHA supplements so I stopped them and flax seed oil for about 6 weeks and it made no difference.

    I scald in a glass canning jar in a pot of boiling...
  6. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    Put a small amount in the fridge and taste it every day. It should be good for at least 8 to 10 days.

    Mine tastes horrid within 24 hours. So sad.
  7. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    Regarding using thermometers:

    I have been using a candy thermometer. I only pump 1/2 to 2 ounces at a time, so the tip is not submerged in my canning jar unless I tilt the jar. However, it is only...
  8. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    I wonder, for those of us who haven't yet thrown out the foul tasting milk: the milk is still healthy, it just tastes bad. If it's not too bad, could it be mixed with better tasting stuff to dilute...
  9. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    Is that a glass or plastic bottle? If it's plastic, is it free of nasty chemicals that leach into milk when heated and would it withstand being immersed in boiling water for a few minutes? If it's...
  10. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    Have you checked out the whisper wear pump? It gets mixed reviews, but you wear it in your bra and pump while you go about your day. It may be a good option for you.
  11. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    My milk was fine for many months--I could save it in the fridge and it would be good a week later. I recently discovered that my year's worth of milk that I was saving for a baby we will adopt is all...
  12. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    I posted this before, but since others are asking, I'll repost. The way I heat my milk is to put it in a canning jar and put it in a small pot of water. I put a candy thermometer in the milk and...
  13. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    I don't know, but I'd think you'd handle thawed scalded milk the same way you'd handle any other thawed milk. According to the info I got with my breastpump, thawed milk can be kept in the fridge for...
  14. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    I tried to find you on the forum, but I just got a general page. Where are you specifically? I'd like more info on the salt bile lipase.
  15. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    One can always hope. If you're off it for an extended period of time, maybe you'll see a change. I'm staying off another week, just in case. I'll psst my findings next week.

    By the way, I get 120...
  16. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    I'd love more info on the salt bile lipase. I'm sure everyone agrees that a simple diet change would be great if that would make a difference.
  17. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    About 3 or 4 weeks ago I stopped taking both flax and DHA (algae based) supplements to see if that would change the lipase levels. I just tasted milk I pumped, but did not scald, less than 36 hours...
  18. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    I swirl mine frequently through the heating process. It doesn't make much, if any, skin doing this.

    I posted this before, I think, but I'll add it here in case anyone needs it. The way I heat my...
  19. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    My LC didn't say ALL women have increased lipase because of exercise or diet, only that some women do. She hadn't heard anything about DHA, but I'm still hoping. I'll try a sample batch again when...
  20. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    I spoke at length with my lactation consultant. She said that a lot of information on DHA is provided by the formula companies. Of course they want their formula with DHA to seem as good as breast...
  21. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    I can't remember if I stopped taking the DHA last Monday or Tuesday. This past Sunday, less than a week no DHA or flax, I pumped and put a small amount in the fridge. I tasted it today--Wednesday....
  22. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    My biggest question right now has to do with DHA.

    I did not have problems with lipase the first several months. My milk could sit in the fridge for a week and still be good. I took flax seed oil...
  23. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    I am pumping to maintain my supply as we go through the adoption process. I also want to have a stash of frozen milk. As my milk heads towards expiration I will donate it to another adopted baby...
