When my eldest son was a baby, the weather got scorchingly hot, and my son decided he would go between refusing to nurse, to wanting to nurse every 30-45 minutes.

Out of desperation I had pumped off milk, and thrown it into the freezer.

The rest of us were all eating ice and slushies, and ice cream (and such frozen treats), my son was looking longingly at these frozen treats.

So I pulled some of the frozen breast milk out of the freezer, put it through my ice shaver, and Viola!

A frozen treat for my son.

He ate it up quite happily, practically living on it for the rest of the hot spell.

When I mentioned this to my pediatrician, he thought I was quite bright for trying it.

Thanks to Shelley for this Frugal Baby Tip!
