Ill be carrying a surrogate pregnancy- The family would like it if I pumped for as long as Im comfortable otherwise they will purchase Milk from a bank..
My question is would it be weird if I chose to give my son leftover/extra BM. He will be almost be 2yrs old by the time the Surro baby is born..

The baby should get all the milk, it is that baby's milk not your child's. It is unreasonable to expect to be able to buy milk from a milk bank, it is $30 an ounce. That would be close to $100 a day as the baby gets older. Milk banks may not be able to spare that much milk for a healthy baby. There may not even be a milk bank in the state where the family lives, not every state has one. You may be able to work out something with them to continue to pump and supply milk.
The adoptive mother can breastfeed. She can rent a pump and start pumping before the baby is born. Then she gets to have the breastfeeding experience with the baby. She may not be able to bring in a full milk supply.
