Can breastmilk go sour while it's still in the breast?

 Can breastmilk go sour while it's still in the breast? My daughter feeds fine on my left breast but when I put her on the right one she immediately gags and spits out the milk like it tastes awful. it looks and smells the same as the other side so idk. She has never really liked that right side but she's been gagging on it for 1 or 2 weeks now. Any ideas?

No.  Does she do that even if you start on that side for a feeding?

Is the letdown faster on that side? She may be gagging because it comes out faster and more forceful on that side.

No, it does not go sour in the breast. She doesn't like the letdown, that's all. Try a different position.

 No it seems slower on that side so idk that side has always been kind of a fight to get her on but lately she's completely refusing

 Thanks maybe a different position will work. I'll try it

By the way... side preference is completely normal and not a worry.

My daughter did this, so I tasted my milk and it was very salty. Must have been from mastitis that cleared up on it's own.

breastmilk never sours in the breast. you probably have overactive letdown on that breast.
