I had given up on it, and started a new one... but I hadn't thrown the old one away yet.
(Yes, I know... I have some serious attachment issues goin' on.)
But when I went to check on the new one this morning, I decided to have one last look at the old one, before giving it a decent burial.
And I don't know if this means anything or not, but it was all bubbly, frothy, and gluggy looking... and it smelled like baby sick.
Is it supposed to smell like baby sick?
Or has "fermenting" just morphed into "rotting"?
I dunno either.
So I just fed both the babies as usual, and will leave the first one a while longer, before giving up on it.
This isn't a photo of mine... mainly because I got so excited at it seeming to still be alive, that I immediately fed it again - doing away with all the bubbles and froth.
But this is what mine looked like.
Well, mine had a slightly more tan-ish color/ dried out look, right around the edges, but I fed it anyway.
The fresh starter that was started yesterday is still a creamy color, but we'll see how it looks tommorrow, eh?
