Old Milk

About an hour ago DS2 (14 months) found half a cup of milk, probably about 12 hours old and drank it. When I smelt the empty cup, it didn't smell great but not really disgusting IYSWIM.

DH thinks he will be fine but I am panicking. I am super careful usually about food safety, best before dates etc. DS2 seems fine at the moment.

If it was 'off' he wouldn't be able to drink it - milk is vile when it goes sour.

Even if he could stomach it, it won't kill him - old bread recipes used sour milk (not to be confused with soured milk, different thing)

12 hours old is not too bad.

That's about the time it takes to make yogurt and that's at about 37oC.

I have drank cups of milk I left from breakfast (so at least 8 hours old - rushing around and forgetting) and they were fine, even though they had been heated initially in the microwave.
