Are you still in need of milk? I have an eight week old who is exclusively breastfeeding and I have been pumping in addition since she was born. I would also be happy to continue pumping for your little one if you need a supply.

I also have milk that I can donate to you. My daughter is 5 months old, and most of the milk I have frozen was from when she was a newborn. I'd also be happy to keep pumping for you. I live in the bronx.

My baby is 10.5 months, but in addition to freshly expressed and frozen milk, I have milk that has been stored since July. I also live in the city (Manhattan). Willing to meet. Good Luck and God bless your new family!

seeking milk for newborn baby we are adopting - in NYC - please help!

Post by adoptingmom on Tue Jan 18, 2011 7:31 pm

Hi,

I posted this in the willing to ship section a few days ago, but then realized I should post it in my local area, too!

Here is our situation: My husband and I were unable to have children and pursued adoption. We just found out that a birthmother due in less than 2 weeks has chosen us to be the parents of her soon-to-arrive baby!

The birthfather has Type-1 diabetes and injects insulin 2x daily. Our OB-GYN here in NYC who reviewed the medical records said that this means our adopted baby will be at higher risk of developing diabetes, too, and that cow's milk formula is a known trigger for babies with high risk! I asked the birthmother if she would be willing to pump and ship but she wants to put the pregnancy and adoption behind her.

I found this milksharing group through a wonderful nurse and lactation consultant - I called to ask her if there was any way for me to induce lactation. Unfortunately, due to my pituitary gland issues and medication I am taking, she advised against it, plus it would take longer than we have - the baby could arrive any day!

Please help if you can. We are happy to pay for supplies and shipping and medical screening tests. The lactation consultant said that breast milk naturally changes composition as time goes on to provide the perfect nutrition for each age of the baby, so she recommended that we at least *try* to find a fairly new mother as her milk would be the best for a newborn nutritionally. However, if that is not possible we still believe any breast milk would be better than formula!

We live in New York City. It would be fantastic to find someone locally and meet in person, but we are open to a long-distance milk donor.

We want to give this baby the best possible start in life, and it breaks our hearts that we may be making it sick with something as terrible as Type 1 diabetes if we feed the baby formula.

THANK YOU! Those two words are inadequate to express our gratitude.
