In February 2010 I was frustrated that my 5 month old daughter wouldn’t take a bottle. Then I smelled it. Something was wrong with my breast milk. After some online research I discovered that I have excess lipase activity in my breastmilk.
I was devastated and heartbroken over the 575 oz of frozen breast milk that my daughter would never drink. I turned to my blog to vent my frustrations and pass along what I’ve learned. I had no idea how many women I would end up reaching through these posts.
Everyday when I see hits on my lipase posts, I am reminded that I am not alone in my struggle with excess lipase activity. This page has been created to support other excess lipase activity women. Below is an up to date list of all my posts on excess lipase activity.
I would love to hear your story. If you are an excess lipase activity mom feel free to leave a comment on this page sharing your journey. You never know who you’ll touch by sharing your story!

Disclosure: I am not a medical professional. I am simply a mom who has walked this journey. It is best to consult with a doctor or lacation consultant before making any decisions on how to handle your lipase issues. This is what worked for me, but it may not be what is best for you and your baby.
