So i've read a million threads on here about bad milk, lipase, scalding etc. My daughter is 11 weeks old and at about 6 weeks i noticed the foul smelling milk. Not soapy not metallic, but like plain old bad milk, sour and def. rancid and tasted the same way.
I wanted your advice on a few issues:
1. Could it in fact be a bag issue and not lipase? - I've seen various posters say that the lanilosh bags do not sour the milk. I've been using babies r us brand because that's what was given to me at my baby shower, however now I'm wondering if it's been the bag the entire time.
2. I have been scalding the milk, however I'm going back to work soon and it's impossible to scald it immediately after I pump it. I'm worried that my milk will sour in the refrigerator by the time I get home (about 6 hours).
3. Is lipase directly related to the souring vs. the soapy taste?
4. Finally, I know scalding the milk is still better than formula, but a part of me feels like I'm removing all of the good stuff by scalding. Right now it's fine bc my daughter breastfeeds, but again I'm worried when I go back to work next month.
Any advice and suggestions are GREATLY appreciated.
