Do you still have milk to donate? My son Graydon was born at 28 weeks. He spent 7 weeks in the NICU. I was in and out of the hospital myself during that time with a couple of different serious postpartum complications and surgeries. I attempted to pump as much as I could during that time. When he got him home from the NICU I was still very weak and struggling with my own health. I tried to breastfeed as much as I could and tried about every galactigog known to man, even an SNS. But, despite my best efforts, my supply just never came in. Now that he has gotten used to donor milk, he cries in pain if I try to give him formula, even if I just add some to try and make the donor milk stretch. I have enough donors for 2 weeks out of the month and have managed to find a couple of one time donors to make up the difference. The problem I have now is that one of my regulars is moving out of state next week for her husbands job and I just wont have the supply I need for him. My other donors' babies are 12 and 19 months and their supplies will be fading before Graydon is weaned.
I am in NY and am willing to ship you supplies to ship the milk back to me . thank you so much for your generosity in donating to anyone i know how much work it is!

700+ oz Milk available for donation NM (90 miles north of El Paso TX)

Post by watawata on Sun Feb 07, 2010 10:44 am

I have 700+ oz breast milk available for donation. I am at Alamogordo, NM, which is about 90 miles north of El Paso, TX, and 60 miles east of Las Cruces, NM.

My son is 2-mo-old. I'm already a qualified milk donor at one of the milk banks. I do not smoke or drink any alcohol. I stay away from drinks that includes caffein such as coffee, soda, and tea. I also try to stay away from medication (I am not on any medication), unless I have an occasional headache etc. (it has been only once that I took one dose of Tylenol), and if I were to take OTC med, it will be from a list of safe medication to take while pregnant and breastfeeding. I am taking prescription prenatal vitamin, calcium, fish oil (omega 3 fatty acid), and vitamin C.

Most milk is frozen in 1-oz sticks, and 20 of them (20 oz) are in 1-quart size Ziplock freezer bags. There is a ice tray specifically designed for freezing breast milk called "Sensible Line milk tray," and that's what I used to freeze my milk. Rest of my milk are in breast milk bags (Gerber or Lansinoh). All of my milk bags are kept in a deep freezer.

I have been blessed with over-supply of breast milk, and my son is a heathly, chunky, and happy baby. Before my freezer overflows, I'd like to donate my extra milk to someone who want them for their precious baby. If you are interested in my milk stash, please send me a PM.

Thank you.
