So I'm getting ready to go back to work in a couple days and of course just in the last week figured out I have excess lipase. Baby has not been able to learn to take a bottle very well because if the milk is even little soapy she won't drink it, and it turns in just a few hours. I've noticed that freezing tends to slow down the lipase activity. What I am wondering is when I do go back to work would it be ok to put the milk I pump at work in the freezer and then thaw and scald it when I get home? I wouldn't freeze it again, just put it in the fridge for the next work day. Or will this ruin all the nutrients in the milk? The only other solution I can think of would be to scald it at work in a bottle warmer since I don't have access to a stove, but that seems like a lot of hassle.
I am really freaked out about returning to work since R hasn't had a chance to master the bottle, and I only have about 9 ounces of milk in the freezer. I am going to pump twice/day between now and when I go back to work on Wednesday to increase that stash and hopefully I can keep my pumping output matched with her intake but if for some reason I don't pump enough we aren't going to have much of a reserve.
