It's Official

I have gross milk. I tested some frozen milk from three days ago and it has the same nasty taste as the old stuff.

If you are looking for some background, see my earlier post.

I am extremely depressed about this. I will now have to throw out over 200 ounces of frozen breastmilk. What am I supposed to do when Jack goes to daycare? I am going to have to pump enough at work during the day to keep up with his feedings. Jesus, no pressure there.

I thought lipase issues were very uncommon, but apparently not that uncommon! I hate to be all woe-is-me, but WTF? Why me? Why can't this be easier? I actually WANT to breastfeed my baby and yet, it is the hardest thing I have ever done.

I need a hug. And a really stiff drink. I will get neither tonight as the wee one is in bed and the husband is out for guy's night. The closest thing I will get to a stiff drink is my nasty dark beer (go go supply issue!).

I suck. More specifically, my milk sucks.


  1. Will he drink the milk? Even if it smells bad, you can still use it if he'll drink it. I hope that helps. I'm sorry you are having issues.

    Excess lipase is only a problem if the baby doesn't drink it. My frozen milk tastes like dirty pennies to me, but DS has no problem with it. He's been drinking two bottles a day for two weeks at daycare. It's still perfectly healthy!
