I've gotten great advice from this board about my excess lipase problem, and I have another question. I have been scalding my milk before freezing or refrigerating, but have not really been able to find any guidelines online as far as cooling before storing goes. I have just been heating on the stovetop and then removing from the burner for and leaving it at room temp for 15 minutes or so and then putting it straight in the fridge. Is this okay?
Seems to be working so far, but the reason I am asking is, I heated like 20 oz last night and after taking it off the heat before i bottled it and put it away, baby woke and I was called to duty and fell asleep for about 3 hours after feeding him... Is that milk okay or should I toss it? Usually, Id just err on the side of caution and throw it out, but it was a significant amount and it was alllll the milk I pumped yesterday and I need it for tomorrow's bottles.
