    Default using up tiny stash of frozen milk

    I am curious as to what to do with some old frozen milk that I caught when I was spraying like crazy at the beginning. There's about 16 oz, and it's been in the freezer for 5 months now. Not sure if it has lipase, but it might. DS is 6.5 months old, and not into solids yet. I guess I am wondering how much longer it will be ok in the freezer, or if it should be used soonish, and how?

    You can chip off chunks and put them in a mesh feeder for a frozen treat. If it is as hot there as it has been here, then it might be good timing.

    You can use it in baby food if you plan to make baby food. Or bake crackers for baby with it.

    It is rather hot, but it feels less hot than this time last year or the year before. I'm sure I'll regret saying that if I go in the yard barefoot in a minute, though. I may try all of these ideas. This may be a stupid question, but how do you serve a baby a smoothie? Open cup?

    we use straws with DS. i suck smoothie into the straw, cap it wtih my finger, and let it dribble into his mouth. he figured it out pretty quick. i thnk we started at maybe 9 months? and now at almost a year he's a pro, even sucks out of the bottom of the straw.
