Thawed milk smells like vomit

I just thawed my first few ounces this evening, and I'm extremely disappointed to discover that I might have an excess lipase issue... the milk smelled like vomit! The fact that my daughter is 100% tube fed right now could be a good thing, since she won't know the difference (at least for now).

Hmmm...sometimes I think my thawed milk smells a little like spitup, but baby takes it fine (she's almost a year, just running down the ol' freezer stash). Is it slightly smelly, or really bad? I have a friend who has excess lipase and her baby will not take her frozen milk. Perhaps you will know when your baby is bottle fed--if she won't take it, then there's excess lipase and it needs to be scalded before freezing?

I must have an "extra lipase" issue, also.

I had a similar issue.
