Why Does My Breast Milk Taste Bad? cover

Are you asking yourself. . .

  • Why is my baby refusing to take a bottle?
  • What is wrong with my breast milk?
  • Why does my breast milk taste bad???
  • What am I going to to do with all the bad tasting milk in my freezer?
  • Am I going to have to stop pumping?
  • What is excess lipase activity?
  • Where can I find the support of someone who understands?

In 2010 I was crying over my keyboard trying to find answers to why my own breast milk tasted so bad. That is when I discovered excess lipase activity, which is a rare condition in breastfeeding that causes expressed breast milk to develop a horrible taste. I continued searching online for more details about excess lipase activity, but there wasn’t much information available.

I started blogging about my journey overcoming excess lipase activity and soon more and more women were coming to my blog for support. I’ve taken the 4 original blog posts that I wrote about my journey and expanded them into an eBook with over 40 pages.

Inside the pages of this downloadable eBook you will find:

  • An explanation of excess lipase activity that you don’t need a medical degree to understand.
  • Answers to 31 frequently asked questions.
  • Detailed instructions on how to test your breast milk for excess lipase activity.
  • Step by step directions on how to scald your milk to stop the bad taste.
  • 8 suggestions on what to do with all of the bad tasting breast milk in your freezer.
  • Step by step information on how to donate your bad tasting breast milk to a milk bank.
  • A list of milk banks that accept milk affected by excess lipase activity and their contact information.
  • My personal story and what happened when my second child was born.
  • Valuable information from Dr. Ruth Lawrence, the nation’s leading authority on breastfeeding.
  • A survey for you to take to help Dr. Lawrence begin the much needed research on excess lipase activity.
  • Support, encouragement, and the knowledge that you are not alone.

By the end of this book you will be fully equipped to continue a healthy breastfeeding relationship with your baby and successfully pump breast milk.

The day I learned I had excess lipase in my breastmilk, my heart broke. And then I found Rebekah. She gave me the faith and perseverance to move beyond my diagnosis and fix it the best I could! I’m so thankful to her! This ebook is beyond thorough and a real gem for the breastfeeding community.

Thank you, Rebekah. Thank you for sharing your story, for letting me know I’m not alone, for giving me hope, and for encouraging me that I’m not a failure. I don’t know you, but I’m so thankful for you.
Rachel Norris
As a mom of a young infant, discovering that my stored milk had tasted bad was very upsetting. My daughter was rejecting the bottle. Luckily, I was able to get first-hand information from Rebekah Hoffer, as well as some emotional comfort. She was a mother who went through exactly what I was dealing with. I felt that I wasn’t alone in wanting to overcome this challenge, and I was empowered to find an efficient routine to start all over again.
Lauren Paul
Thanks to you, we are scalding the milk before we freeze it. I can happily report that our daughter just had her first taste of thawed, scalded breastmilk today, and she chugged the whole bottle in a minute! So, it worked! Thank you, again. You’ve given us a wonderful gift and a sense of relief.
