I am the mother of a 6 month old baby boy. He was born with a collapsed lung and spent 3 days in the NICU. Since I was unable to breastfeed those first few days, I pumped a lot and now have a huge milk supply. I can pump about 12 ounces every 3-4 hours. My son takes about 30-35 ounces a day so I ahve a ton of leftover milk. I tried contacting the Childrens hospital near me to donate, but they didn't take donations. Contacted a milk bank and they never responded to my email so I gave up. I hated to do it, but I've dumped tons down the drain and still do. I came across an article today about MilkShare and figured I'd post a topic.
I live in Chicago and have probably 20 freezer bags of 5-6 ounces that I'd be happy to share. I plan to breastfeed for another 3 months and would be happy to continue pumping and supply to someone in the area. My doctor is in the area so I can easily obtain my blood results from my pregnancy. I don't smoke and if I have a glass of wine, I'm sure to dump it down the drain. I have so much, I've never wanted to take the chance
