I think I might have excess lipase in my breast milk. My son is 1 month old, and I just recently started pumping. I've followed all the guidlines regarding proper pumping and storage.
I noticed that the breast milk started to smell a little funny after four days in the refrigerator, so I tasted some of my pumped milk from today and then tried the 4 day old milk. It was terrible. So terrible that it made me throw up.
Doing a little research, it sounds like it might be a lipase issue and I also read that even though the milk might smell and taste bad, it's not really bad? So how do you know when it actually goes bad? I have no desire to EVER taste the milk again, as over an hour later, I can still taste it. Ick.
I will be going back to work in about 3 weeks, so I definitely will be needing to pump and hopefully freeze some milk from time to time. What are my best options here?
Complicating things is the fact that we're pretty sure my son has a dairy sensitivity/allergy and I've had to cut out dairy from my diet. We don't want to have to switch him to formula because our formula options are alimentum or nutramigen...we definitely don't want to have to put him on either of those.
Thanks in advance!!
