Frozen breast milk vs fresh pumped

Is there a dramatic change in breast milk from 3 months from 6 months?
I have been giving my daughter an oatmeal cereal with freshly pumped milk in the mornings as a breakfast snack at 6 months. And lately wanted to use up the milk I've pumped in June, and mix in with the cereal; but she makes the face n refuses to eat it. I've tried giving her the remaining milk in a bottle, she won't take it either. She used to be in a daycare for couple of months before and I pumped at work and she'd take the breast milk in a bottle just fine, but she hasn't taken it in a bottle since June.
So maybe she just got used to the breast:-/ any thoughts?

Have you tasted the milk?

Some women, including myself, have excess lipase which breaks down the fat in stored milk, completely harmless, BUT it changes the flavor of the milk, and some babies will them refuse this milk. The milk will taste "soapy".

I can not taste the milk, just can't. But it doesn't smell any different.

Probably lipase.

You may not be able to smell any change, could still be excess lipase.


Quoting SallyQ:

Is it me or everybody is like that, I think breast milk is the most important meal for a baby! There is nothing better, no doubt, but I just can't taste it, it makes sick just thinking about it.

My dd also won't drink frozen breastmilk as of lately (she's one). I think it must taste different. It could also be the bottle your using. Mabey try a sippy cup at this age.
