Today I donated well over 200 ounces of pumped milk to a Mama and Baby in need. I was so excited to help them out and get my freezer space back. My son is 14 months old and I began pumping when I returned to work 6 months pp. But after much trying and many wasted bags of expressed milk my son would never take it from anything but the source. Thankfully, I was able to BF on my lunch breaks.
Being able to provide for another baby in need is very rewarding. I cannot believe it but I am actually considering pumping again to be a continuing donor. I never had any issues pumping and could easily get 3-6 oz. in a session. But I did stop pumping just before I hit the one year mark. I am slightly worried I might cause me to get an oversupply though.
Do we have anyone else in the group giving or receiving donor milk?
