My ebf DS is 8 mo. He went to daycare at 4 mo and had been taking bottles fine. In fact, he sucked down any amt of milk they offered him. 4 weeks ago he started refusing bottles at daycare. He has gotten better, but I noticed he is more apt to refuse on Mondays. I noticed that my milk starts to smell off after even 24 hrs. What can I do?
For background, DS is my 4th child. My milk always tasted soapy after a few days in the fridge (well before the charts say it should be "bad") so I always scalded the milk I pumped on Fridays and froze it to feed on Mondays. If I froze without scalding, it smelled soapy immediately after thawing.
So, now I don't know what to do with the expressed milk on Fridays and how to get milk for bottles on Monday if I want to nurse on the weekends. I don't think my diet has changed in the past few weeks. What could make my milk go bad quickly? Thoughts?
