In my last post I mentioned having a little "incident" with Sam and some milk.
Here's the scoop.
We were getting him started on solids, beginning with the usual rice cereal thinned out with breast milk. I went to my stash of frozen milk, pulled out a bag, and after it was thawed out mixed up his first bowl of rice cereal.
I get all excited since it's his first taste of solids (not that it really counts as a solid since it's sooo thinned out, but anywho) and record his first bites.
He is a little less than happy.
This leaves me totally confused because I remember Izzy LOVING it. So I do what any mom would do, I tasted it.
I didn't even have a full baby sized spoonful of this stuff and I was gagging and scrambling to the pantry desperate to find anything I could toss in my mouth to get the taste out.
Sour milk. Waaaayyyy sour.
Gah!!! I felt like such a horrible mommy shoving that down this throat. No wonder his little face was all scrunched up! If he has major food aversions later on, at least I know I can pinpoint the cause :D
So, I'm pretty sure all of my frozen milk stash is ruined. I thawed out a couple more bags to see test the condition and it doesn't look good. Despite keeping it frozen on our trip from KS to TX, something must have gone wrong.
I am pretty much devastated. Liquid gold. Down the drain.
If you've breastfeed and stored milk, have any of you had your milk go bad? What's the deal?
