Searching for milk in NC/SC/SoVA

Post by mcthom on Wed Feb 17, 2010 11:19 am


I have insufficient glandular issues coupled with severe post-partum/Hashimoto's thyroidits, which leaves me with zip for milk. With my first son, this totally blindsided me so I tried in vain to increase my supply. But with IG, it didn't matter what I did to increase it, if the mechanics aren't there, no amount of compression, herbs, meds, etc will increase it, and a really wonky thyroid spinning wildly out of control does nothing to help!

Fortunately, this time I was prepared (my second son is 3mos old), and I have been oh so fortunate to find donated milk for him. That said, we have only one more month's supply before we run out. I would be eternally grateful to anyone willing to share their milk. Ideally, I would love to find a regular donor but would be happy to have anything.

I am in Chapel Hill, NC but am willing to pay for any expenses in order for you to pump or ship the milk. Or I can meet or pick up. Please let me know if you want to hear more about our story (saga) and supply issues.

Many thanks!
