I've read that it is a normal change for breastmilk during weaning. I haven't experienced it though.

That is what happened to my milk when I got pregnant with my 2nd. I was still nursing my first and he self weaned when I was 5 months pregnant or so and DH tasted my milk and said it was salty.

My milk went bitter when i got pregnant with number 2. That is why my daughter weaned. She gagged on it once then never tried to nurse again. She was 11 1/2 months
