I have been curious as to why when my DS is nursing I smell what seems to be something metallic. So I did my research and discovered the whole excess lipase thing... However, in all my research, every case was one of frozen milk - where when thawed it tasted soapy and/or metallicy.
Well, I tried some thawed milk and to my surprise it totally tasted soapy - but didnt smell all that much like metal. My question is whether anyone's fresh milk smells like metal - like immediately as it is being expressed by your LO (which is the reason why I didn't post this thread under the 'milk storage' forum).
Also, I have read that other than the funny smell and/or taste that it is safe to give to our babies. Is that an accurate statement? My DS doesn't seemed bothered by the bottle - whether it be fresh or thawed stored breastmilk. And of course, he certainly isn't bothered by direct from the source. Because it smells like that right from me, I obviously can't scald it ahead of time, otherwise every meal would be via bottle.
I'm not all that worried just more curious.
