donors do you pump and freeze a little for your own babe?

i nurse on demand and he's never had a bottle. i think i may start to save some milk for him though when he starts to teethe or when i feel we may be ready to have a few hours away from one another.

I work full time. I technically only pump for my child but my 3 sessions at work leaves me with a LOT more milk then I can use for my own child. if I were donating or not, I would be pumping the same amount. I am *blessed* with over supply so it lends itself well to fulfilling my childs needs and supplimenting to my recpient family. I'm more then happy to have my surpluss be put to good use.

Yes I saved some of my frozen for my dd incase my supply took a hit and at about 6 1/2 or 7 months my supply started dropping and hasn't stopped since so I am now dipping into my frozen and now looking for a local donor for my daughter to get her to a year on BM but so far no luck.

Yes, my milk supply drops as the babies get older. So I save the frozen milk for them.

Yes, I pump exclusively and all my milk goes to my baby. I am an overproducer and freeze about half of what I produce each day. I pump about 50oz/day so I have a lot left over. My deep freezer is getting full and I want my baby to drink fresh milk as much as possible until I decide to wean. I have a few more months to go before I can start weaning since my freezer probably only holds 2000 oz and I only have 300 more before it's full. I'm glad I can donate to help other babies grow.
