People donate while they are breastfeeding, once baby weans basically your milk dries up because weaning is a gradual thing.
I used milkshare.forummotion, eats on feets and humna milk 4 human babies for my states to donate to 3 different babies.
I found my recipient through human milk 4 human babies. She's inducing lactation for an adopted baby but needed some milk to supplement.
I did not know this was a thing, that's so cool. It makes sense now that I hear it, but I've just never thought about it I guess.
You ladies are great, I'm sure that made such a difference to people.
I have thought about doing this. but I havent decided yet though

eats on feet on facebook or human milk 4 human babies is who I donated to
Good advice on this post. I plan to start donating soon too!
Quoting lulu_tattoos:I want to know more. I'm pumping here and there to store, just because I can and I get good output. Maybe every other day or so. I feel like right now I could pump about 8 oz a day with no problem if I wanted to. But will that really mess with my supply if I start doing that?
Do I need to pump more if I want to donate?
How do I store and ship it? Is the cost for that high? Is it okay to ask for partial shipping costs from the person I donate to so that its more feasible for me to donate?
Aren't there companies that take donations and pasteurize so that its more "safe"?
