    Default breast milk yogurt??

    The kellymom website seems to suggest it's possible to make yogurt out of breast milk. Has anyone tried making it? I have some frozen BM in the freezer that I worked hard to save that's reaching its 3 months' mark; I don't think we're going to need it soon enough. I would love to share it with someone else but honestly I would like to try ways of getting a bit more BM one way or another into my all-about-playing, not-very-much-into-eating little girl of mine first. (She's probably getting enough; I just think it'd be lovely if she would eat a bit more, tiny, lean thing that is not even very long).

    What I would wonder about is if the cooking process destroys the nutrients at all? I know microwaving it does...but that might be somthing differnt all together?

    not sure about that, but your adding the cultrues...
    I would think eating would still be beter then a sub of other milks or formula.

    You only heat the milk to 180' never to boiling..

    yeah I think I'd have to use dairy free starter since LO is only 6.5 months old. by the way can I give her yogurt this early if it's made from BM?

    dr sears has in in the 9-12 month range but thats just a guide.


    have any luck with spoon feeding? I might try that with just the mommas milk before I went to all the trouble to making yougart out of it.
    Not that its trouble but it would be extra work.
