Hello, I am the mother of two boys, ages 3 years and 6 months. I suffer from low supply and am currently taking domperidone and herbal supplements and teas to allow me to nurse my youngest. We supplement with about 6-8 ounces per day. After the complications that I had nursing my first son until he started to refuse the breast at 6 months, I am even more determined to nurse my second son into toddlerhood. With the help of an SNS I nursed him exclusively while supplementing with donor milk for the first 3 months. As he got more fidgety with the SNS tubes, we introduced the bottle and he now gets 1 or two bottles per day (with donor milk or my milk). We have been blessed with milk from 7 different mothers so far!
I just found out that our long-time donor has been unable to pump for the last few weeks. If you have any milk to spare, even just a few ounces, please contact me. I am willing to travel anywhere in Maine and would appreciate anything you have. I will gladly replace milk bags or provide bottles or whatever you need to make donation easier!
Thank you for your time and willingness to share your gift with others!
