How is Breast Milk suppose to smell when warmed up from being frozen or refrigerated?
Yesterday I thawed out some of my BM while out to eat to put into a bottle, it had been frozen and was pumped a few weeks ago. My DH ended up giving the bottle to our DS when we got home because my son ended up sleeping all through dinner. My DH gave him the bottle and I went and pumped. After I pumped I took the fresh milk and stuck it in the frig. and it really had no smell to it at all (the fresh milk). My husband then said the milk that was in the bottle (the stuff we had thawed out) smelled and I smelled it and it did smell sour. I've heard you can refrigerate BM for a number of days, and can freeze it for months, so why would the frozen milk smell bad?? Has anyone ever had this happen? Now I'm concerned about all the BM I've been stock pileing in the freezer. How long can you put milk in the frig. before freezing it? I've been keeping it in the frig. for two, sometimes three days occasionally before putting it into bags to freeze.
