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!

Large freezer stash and fresh available in Lansing area

I half a freezer full of frozen milk I'm looking to give away. I used to live in the southeastern part of the state and had no trouble donating then, but it's hard to arrange transport for the milk and I can't drive out there regularly. The oldest is just over 3 months old and all I ask is that if you can't use all of it, you return it to me or find someone else who can use it. Smile I pump at work and I have about 30 extra ounces a week I can keep refridgerated if transportation can be arranged that frequently. I sterilize everything before each use and use the presterilized Lasinoh bags, my baby just doesn't use all of it. I put a lot of care into properly storing it so I'm hoping someone can use this for their baby!
