looking for milk in Brooklyn/NYC

Post by whoabethy on Sat Feb 27, 2010 2:49 pm

Hi there,
My name is Bethany. Our baby, Hazel, was born at 35 weeks in late November. After an emergency c-section, we kept waiting and waiting for my breasts to become engorged. They never did. After meeting with a lactation and consultant and a lactation physician, I was diagnosed with "insufficient glandular tissue" - meaning, for whatever reason, my breasts did not develop properly during my pregnancy. I would never be able to exclusively breastfeed. Needless to say, this was EXTREMELY disappointing.

Right now I am on fenugreek, blessed thistle, and domperidone. I also pump after every feeding. Despite all this, I am still only producing about 8-10oz. of milk a day. Not enough for my hungry baby girl! We have been supplementing with formula, but breastmilk is what I want for Hazel. She has no allergies and I am comfortable with a mama who drinks alcohol and caffeine occasionally.

We have a car so we can pick up breastmilk from you. Thanks for thinking of us! Here is a picture of Hazel: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=5467721&l=b7e9725edd&id=543810785

Thanks,
Bethany
