I have a modest freezer stash about 25 bags averaging 4oz a piece. Since Ive been EPing weve pretty much used nothing but fresh

Hi

So my frozen milk has always had a metallic taste and smell to it that I find revolting but my dd still gobbles it up. I am careful to get as much air out of the Lansinoh bags as I can, freeze flat, and then put 10 bags at a time into a large ziplock freezer bag and store in a deep freeze. I try to use one frozen bag a day to rotate my stash (currently using up the last of my february stash). It doesn't seem to matter how old or fresh my frozen milk is...it always has the same metallic taste..Yuk! I have read on here before that if your milk is truely off your LO will refuse to drink it...but I don't know for sure. It would be a tragedy if you had to dump your stash :( Personally, I think if your LO is happy to drink it then I would go for it (as long as it has been handled appropriately and doesn't look obviously freezer burnt). Good luck!
