Excess lipase, maybe?

I can't tell if the babies hate the bottle or my milk in the bottle. I think I may have excess lipase in my milk, making it taste bad. It smells bad a short time after pumping. Anyone know anything about that?

How long does it take to start smelling bad? Also, is it a soapy or metallic smell?

It seems between one and two hours, I'm not positive. I tested it out once, but probably want to do it again. Honestly, I don't think it smells like soap. It doesn't smell good though. If I had to pick between soap and metal, I'd say metal.

Re: Excess lipase, maybe?

I have excess lipase and I don't think it smells soapy either. I guess you could say it smells metallic....doesn't matter, it just doesn't smell right. I figured out how long mine lasted by tasting it every hour, and by four hours it still smelled fine, but it was AWFUL tasting. There is some great info on how to deal with the issue (should you decide that is what the problem is) on this site:

Good luck!
