Use a deep freezer or put it in a freezer you don't open often. Don't put it in the door. Label well! Put only 2-4 oz in each bag. Lay the bags flat to freeze and then you can stack them.

Get up each morning before the baby wakes up and pump first before the baby eats.  It is easiest for the pump to get the milk toward the front and baby can easily get the milk towards the back glands.  This should increase your production as well.  Each time you feed the baby, pump before you feed.  This is how I stock piled and I donated over 1,500oz of bm.  Where do you plan to donate?

I wish I responded to a pump or even had a place/person to get donated milk from when I had ds...where I live they have no breast milk donation places anywhere in my Provence.

First she needs to make sure she cannot breastfeed while on the meds and if not then she must pump and dump to keep up with the supply. Check with the pharmacist and doctor about the medication. It's alright to share milk like that long as ya'll both agree
