    Default pumped breastmilk (colostrum) question

    I have a 5 week old and I have been pumping since I got home from the hospital. THe thing is last week we started with the bottle (pumped breastmilk) and she did fine taking it. THe first couple of times I used fresh pumped milk and she did fine with it. THen I pulled the first bag of frozen milk which was colostrum and she drank it but was up with ear piercing screams cause her stomache hurt from it. The thing is should I just use the frozen milk that is the regualr breastmilk and throw out the frozen colostrum since it hurt her tummy or should I try again with another bag?

    What does the frozen milk smell like? What does it taste like?

    No smell is a good thing. If you think it's a problem, I wouldn't use it. Maybe keep it just in case but don't use it you know?? oops, crying baby...

    It could have possibly been a gas bubble too. DS used to get them with some bottle feeds but not others. And they wouldn't happen right away it'd be half an hour to an hour later.
