I *hope* to leave around 9 which gets us into Rochester around 11. But with a 3 year old and 2 month old I can't promise anything. I can call you when were getting close. I'm glad we can help.

That would be amazing! I actually live close to the zoo, and I would be more than happy to meet you there on Saturday Smile What time are you thinking about coming? I can make any time work for me.

Evelyn and I both appreciate your help. Your milk will help us get ahead and have me not worrying so much about pumping for the next day AND building a freezer stash. I'd like to keep in touch about future donations as well, just in case. I'm about 10 days into the Domperidone so we'll see where that takes me.

I will PM you my phone number so you can let me know when you're coming up. I'll also give you some cash for bags Smile

My LJ name is SteggysMom btw Smile

I don't want to completely crush my stash so maybe 130 oz? With possible future donations if your interested. I decided I'm going to take the girls to the Rochester Zoo possibly Saturday. So I could meet you some place in Roch rather then part way. I've been wanting to get uop there so this is a good incentive.
Everything is frozen into Medela bags and dated.
Most of me doesn't want to accept any supply $$, however, I am low on bags so maybe a little so I can buy more storage bags.

Were lj friends too! Small world. I'm kinda recognisable as fireworksinjuly. Who?

I am definitely interested! That is so awesome, I'd love to work something out! How much would you be willing to part with? Where would you like to meet up? Also, would you like some $$ for supplies/gas/etc? I'm more than willing to help out with that.

Let me know, mama!

PS I think we're friends on LJ?

I should add that if you are interested I would be willing to meet you part way. If your not interested no biggie just let me know either way.

I live in elmira. Its about 2 hours from Rochester. I have a good 100oz in the freezer. The oldest is from 7/15. I went back to work and usually pump at least double what she eats. I had over supply with my first too. I don't smoke don't drink. I only take pre natals (no other meds even an asprin) I do eat/ drink milk products. I suspect I do have excess lipase but it seems to take more then a month to even begin to break down. Neither of my kids ever had an issue with it.

ISO milk in WNY

Post by vegavelocity on Mon Aug 02, 2010 2:55 pm

Backstory: Full-time WOHM, DD (6 mos) is still given only mama milk. Due to a supply drop, my freezer stash has been entirely depleted and I am out of ideas. I am starting Domperidone tomorrow but that takes time and for the last few days I have only been pumping exactly what DD eats the next day. Today, I only pumped 10 oz - usually it's more like 15. It is the absolute furthest thing from my mind to supplement - I refuse to give up! If you have milk you can share - or any further ideas - let me know!

I've tried:
Increased hydration
Fenugreek (1200 mg 3x/day)
Mother's Milk tea and Milkmaid tea, both of which make me gag, probably because of the Fennel (I HATE licorice)
Increased nursing
Increased pumping

Halp me! I'm in Rochester, NY.

Thanks!
