Lumpy milk

Hi moms, I had breast engorgement where I did Javanese massage that help the lump on my breast. Now I started getting milk blisters so I just tarted eating lecithin supplement once daily which help increase my milk volume but started noticing my milk is lumpy especially the breast that I had engorgement… so I throw the milk and not feed my LO as I was afraid milk was spoil.. any mum had such experience ? Should I be concern to go to doc ? #advicepls #1stimemom

Lumpy as in when you’re pumping or after you left it for awhile? Are the lumps whitish/light yellowish and chunky? If it is, it’s probably just fats. To avoid wasting the milk, you can always do a smell & taste test. Bad milk taste sour. Some milk do smell bad (not spoilt, just high lipase), so best if you do a taste test :)
