I'm interested in your leftovers if you still have it. I'm a military wife in Woodbridge and have a 7 wk old son that my supply is barely keeping up with. I am adamant on using breastmilk only but my supply is just not up to par. He should be receiving about 17 oz a day and I'm only producing 14-15 oz (I pump so I keep a log) a day so thats all he's getting...which is leading me to be concerned about his weight gain, etc. Please let me know if you still have it. Thank you!

I have a bunch of breastmilk in my freezer and don't have space for anything else anymore. I need to clean house! I haven't counted how much, but it's at least 200 oz. The oldest milk is about a month old. My son is 4 months old tomorrow, so the milk is made for a 3-month old baby.
I do eat meat and dairy, but I don't drink alcohol, do drugs, smoke, or drink a lot of caffeine (I do have the occasional decaf coffee, but I try to drink it right after I pump and if I think the milk might be caffeinated I mark it as such on the bag). I don't have a convenient copy of my full medical history, but I promise I don't have any communicable diseases/STDs. The only thing I should disclose is that I am not eligible to donate to milkbanks because I grew up in England when I was a baby so theoretically I could have mad cow disease (it was 25 years ago, so probably I'm in the clear!).
Please let me know if you're interested or have questions!
