When my eldest son was a baby, the weather got scorchingly hot, and my son decided that 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 trough my ice shaver, and viola - a frozen treat for my son.
He ate is up quite happily and practically lived on it for the rest of the hot spell.
When I mentioned to my pediatrician, he thought I was quite bright for trying it.
