    Default Milk smells different after being frozen. Not a sour smell.

    The milk just smells off when I defrost it. I can't tell if it's the smell of the plastic storage bags or what. It doesn't smell like it's sour or spoiled, just different compared to the fresh. Actually, the fresh milk really doesn't have much of a smell to begin with. Is this a common thing and should I be concerned about giving it to my baby?

    if your baby is taking it then i would not worry about it. if the baby refuses it it may be a lipase issue, the taste/smell can vary.

    Yep. Freezing can alter the flavor and odor. If baby will drink it, it's OK. Even if baby won't drink it, it's still OK, unless you abused it. You will know if it's rotten!
