    Default What's the lipase issue?

    Hi. I saw the "Lipase" thread but couldn't find the original conversation that explains what the problem is. Can someone explain?

    I don't know of a thread that explains it (although I'm sure there are a few out there) but the problem is an enzyme that breaks down in the milk causing it to have a soapy, sour or really bad taste. It's not harmful to your baby, but depending on your babies preference they may or may not take the expressed milk.

    Here's a good link with some more info

    Breastfeeding is an instinctual and natural act, but it is also an art that is learned day by day.
