Would you give away your breast milk ????

To a family member who has just received a newborn to adopt? My daughter just received the ultimate gift from her cousin's wife, she just had a baby 3 months ago and offered her the spare breast milk.....she pumped just for this little angel, I was very touched, would you?

  • You bet I would! In fact after I have my next baby, if our breast milk bank is open, I plan on donating as long as I can!

  • Sure, but no one would like mine laced with vodka, LOL!
    I most certainly would for someone.

  • If they were okay with my medications, caffeine intake and my baby didn't need it- sure!

  • i gave mine to the babies in the hospital. every time i would go to see my son i would pump a lot of milk and by the time he came home i had a lot left. If the parents say its ok to give their child then the hospital gave them my milk.

  • This breast milk comes from a mom who is taking no medication and is super healthy and eats very healthy...so it should be ok right?

  • I am so glad to hear that you all would....maybe this breast milk can undo what her maternal mother did, she was born with weed and cocaine in her system and her mother also had syphilis but the baby tested negative. We will retest again in a month and hopefully we will get another negative then....it fills my heart with joy to give this angel the home she deserves...
