    I asked this question of my LLL leader and was told that you should only mix them if they are the same temp, so cool with cool. etc.

    She said it was fine to mix them from different dates so long as the temps were the same, but you should date them by the oldest milk.

    If I am mixing two bottles of chilled milk and the fat is clinging to the sides - it swirls up just fine if you let it sit on the counter for a minute or so. Sometimes if I'm in a rush, I scrape the fat off the sides with a little baby spoon and then swirl the bottle.



    Maybe I'm old skool, too.

    I think this is called tempering an egg. If you don't mix them up quite right the egg will start to cook.

    But that is a different cooking lesson for a different day, such as in this delightful recipe.

    Not trying to but it flashed in my mind. YUM.

    Well thanks ladies for the clarification! I had no idea, so I really appreciate the info! And yeah the fat does stick to the sides..weird right? But i never thought of using a spoon to push it off and swirl it so good idea...
