Does Breast milk get spoiled. If so how can it become spoil and how long does it take?

Not when the milk is outside to breast but inside the breast! example.. skipping a day of breast feeding will it spoil?

  • It will not spoil inside the breast. Ever. BUT you might get a clogged duct or mastitis if you wait too long. (DO NOT stop nursing if you DO get these, in fact, nurse MORE) but no, it wont. It will spoil outside the breast and has a soapy (like dishwashing liquid) smell to it. If it does, toss it.

  • But skipping a day and nto pumping or expressing can cause an infection/mastitis, so I wouldn't recommend it.
