The milk is no longer available, but I will probably have more to donate in the future and will post again soon.

Thanks.

We are also interested in the milk I live just outside of Albany. I am looking for milk for my 5 month old FTT baby. We recently had a small donation but have used all of it up.

Albany Milk

Post by llpeters on Thu Jul 14, 2011 8:43 am

Hi! I am in need of breast milk for my four month old son. I have had to rely completely on donated milk due to a breast reduction surgery I had as a teen. I am a couple of hours away but would be willing to make the drive. Is the milk still available? Thanks! Lori

Breastmilk Available- Albany Area

Post by PritePenny on Tue Jul 12, 2011 1:26 pm

Hello,

I have over 500 ounces of breastmilk that I would like to donate. I am storing it in a chest freezer and have not counted it, so it could be more, but definitely not less. : ) All the bags are labeled with the date and amount. I store the milk in sterlized lansiloh milk storage bags.

When my baby was born, he struggled to latch correctly, so I started pumping 8 to 10 times a day. At about 6 weeks of age, he learned to latch and is now breast and bottle fed, although he clearly prefers to nurse. I currently breastfeed him and pump 5 times a day. I have been freezing my extra breastmilk since April. My son was born in late March at 7 pounds, 12 ounces and has always been around the 85th percentile for height and weight. It is highly likely that I will have more breastmilk to donate in the future, but for now, I have milk available that was pumped between mid April, May, and the first half of June.

I do not smoke. I had one alcoholic frozen drink on two different occasions, but did not feed or store the milk from the closest pumping session (just to be extra safe). I am not on any special diet, but I try to eat healthy. I do not eat any seafood. I do not take any prescription medicines. I take a mult-vitamin and Omega-3 vitamin every day. I do not drink coffee. I do drink tea and soda, so the milk may have some caffeine in it. My son has not been sensitive to it, but I have never had more than 2 cups in one day. I sterilize my pumping equipment every other day, so the milk would not be suitable for preemie or severely ill babies.

I would prefer to meet to exchange the milk, but am also open to mailing it, if needed.

Please feel free to ask me any questions. I hope to hear from you soon, as I do not want to throw this milk out, but I am running out of room in my chest freezer!

Thanks!

PritePenny
