I already answered not knowing you had stored breastmilk, which really doesn't make sense in regard to your story (self weaned, milk dried up but yet you have lots of milk in the fridge?) idk




Anyway Im a baker and the other night my so and I were joking about making breastmilk cupcakes but only for taste because breastmilk is so sweet and creamy lol

Lol Even after 12 months, babies benefit from human milk. At one year of age, a baby's immune system is functioning at only 60 percent of adult level and because formula has no live antibodies, it is strongly associated with high rates of infection. So just a extra way to keep my son healthy I guess. he self weaned but he still loves cuddling with the booby when he is upset etc I would just love to reintroduc some breast milk into his diet.

No I don't have any stored milk yet. (but most moms who would do think to do this have a supply) I am due in July with my second baby we moved cross country my son flew with my husband I drove are car ( 1 week trip my husband has very bad arthritis so he couldn't drive) by the time I got to ND my son had self weaned I was devastated I think when my milk comes in and I get a supply again it would be a awesome idea to reintro breast milk into his diet.

Doesn't extreme heat alter the chemical composition of breastmilk, removing nutrients, thus rendering it not as superior as raw milk?

Not sure exactly to be honest but there were more then a few recipes on there where the breast milk was not cooked if that is true like smoothies for your LO etc.

I wouldn't put it in a special recipe...if I wanted him to drink breast milk, I'd just give it to him in a cup...
