Two questions here!
1: This weekend I have been in extreme pain and upset stomach from eating undercooked parsnips (who knew - there's a toxin in them that needs to be cooked out well, and not knowing that, I just lightly steamed them with my other vegs!). Thankfully I'm the only one who ate them. But if baby was going to react too through my milk, would it have already happened? ie. how long does it take for what we eat to pass into our milk? (I ate them on Friday evening and Saturday noon again before I realized that they were the problem; it's now Sunday evening and the pain is lessening for me.)
2: I haven't given baby a bottle or pumped since she was finally able to nurse exclusively at 6 weeks old, and she's now 8 months. Considering the idea of trying a bottle just once or twice so I can try to go out for an hour on my own (which she still can't handle! so I'm wondering if milk would change that even if it were Daddy giving it to her!), but I don't have a pump any more because I just rented one for those 6 weeks, so all I have is some milk frozen from when she was a newborn (last July). I know milk changes as baby gets older, so is it OK to use that milk now?
