Re: Metallic smell
Can you describe the smell a little more? And tell us who is taking the iron pills- you or the baby?
Basically, I think that in an otherwise healthy, happy baby, this is nothing to worry about. Lipase is a naturally occurring enzyme which breaks down the fats in milk, allowing for easier digestion. Lipase requires time to work and therefore is only a problem in stored milk. It is not unhealthy for a baby to consume milk that has been affected by excess lipase. The only real issue is taste, which may cause a baby to reject stored milk.
