    I hadn't heard that, I thought that was what people did to wean? I've never had to do it myself

    I used to pump out just before I went to bed. DS didn't wake until 2am so I had plenty of time to make more. I used to freeze that feed and boob the rest of the time. This habit was a life saver for me because I suffered from recurrent mastitis so I always had a stash if my supply took a hit.

    yep, my defrosted or stored milk was tasting gross until I started scalding it before freezing.
    The theory goes that the heat deactivates an enzyme (lipase) that breaks down the fat in the milk. Some of this is obviously essential but too much results in a sour, soapy taste after not too long.
    So I express, immediately scald on the stove in a milk jug, then straight into a zip lock bag in the freezer, and we've had no issues since.

    I've never heard this before, how odd!
    Was it from an old MCHN?

    I have also never heard of this before. I've always mixed ebm/formula or formula/cows milk when transitioning
