    Default Scalded breastmilk and weird poop.

    Since I've started scalding my milk a little over a week ago my baby's poops have changed - even though she gets about 50% "from the tap" breast milk. Her poop is now coming less frequently - 1-2 big BMs a day - and it is a strange sticky smooth consistency. It is also a little greenish. I find it may smell a little stronger too.

    I was scalding to 180 and now I'm doing 163 for 15 sec for the past day so we'll have to see if it changes again.

    Anyone else notice this?

    I don't think it's the milk. Their bowels are maturing and they start to go less frequently.

    So the poo has gone back to normal now that I am scalding to 163 for 15 seconds. It was really weird and homogenous looking and now back to normal "seedy" texture.

    I never thought I would get so into studying someone's poop.
