I have a 9 week old who is growing GREAT on breast milk (was born at 7lbs 14oz/21inches and was 11lbs 6oz/23 inches at 6 week check). I have been pumping now that I have returned to work as a medical student and am quickly accumulating a large surplus. Have about 100 extra frozen ounces to donate now, more coming in the next few weeks.
I am healthy but taking 50mg zoloft to prevent post-partum depression. I am totally comfortable giving my milk to my precious baby girl but cannot donate to a milk bank for this reason. Would love to help someone out who cannot breast feed. As a health care professional and future ob/gyn I strongly believe in the benefits of breast feeding.
Let me know if you are in interested! I am in Madison so not far away

I am so thankful there are people out there willing to help! I have four children and have been unable to breastfeed any of them. I have PCOS and hypoplastic breasts and spent months and months working to breastfeed my children (domperidone, pumping, herbs, SNS). My sister graciously pumped for my first three children because she had her own children around the same time. I recently had my fourth child and unfortunately my sister didn't also have one She was born on October 30th and although I am "nursing" for comfort, she requires about 25-30 ounces of formula per day. I am looking to offset some of the formula with donated milk.
If anyone is interested in helping us please let me know. I live in the Milwaukee area but would be willing to drive a good distance to get the milk or pay for shipping costs.
Thanks so much!
