    Default have to toss my stash!

    OMG.. I worked so hard to get a good freezer stash, and now I find out I have a lipase issue and all my milk that's only 1.5 months old is tasting funky! I have been able to get fresh milk to last by scalding it, but it's killing me to think I have to toss the 140 oz. in my freezer because of this!

    140 oz. wasted because it took that long for us to get to the lipase milk (since we were using oldest first) and now it's all funky! AAGH!

    How can I donate it if it's rancid from the lipase? I'd love to not see it wasted, but if I can't use it, how could they?

    I did not have a lipase issue, however why can't you scald it after freezing? I would change your thread title to include lipase. I know there are plenty of mamas with the same problem. They may have some advice for you.

    Does your LO refuse it? I had a lipase issue as well, and even though we could smell it, he would still eat it no problem. At least that way we didn't have to lose all that pumped milk, because we had 100's and 100's of oz too from when he was in the hospital. It would have killed me! Good luck mama.

    He has been refusing all bottles lately (see my other post) so it's hard to know if he would take the frozen milk anyway. Maybe I'll just keep the stash until I can get him to take bottles again and then try it to see if he'll still go for it.

    And scalding it after it's sour doesn't do any good-- the damage is done already.
