  • Have you heard about how the "cream rises to the top" of milk straight from a cow? Thats how BM is, after all it is straight from the source. As far as it going bad, it lasts fooorrreeeeverrr! Lol

  • cows milk does exactly the same thing if its not homogenized.

    its completely normal, its just we are used to seeing milk from the supermarket, not the cow :)

    just shake it
