I think it can be done. Probably safest to wrap each bottle in some bubble wrap , send a bit larger container than needed and add brown paper bag packing around the bottles and the coolant. I could send you the bubble wrap if you don't have any. What do you think? You can email at nannette(at)kitenerd(dot)com.

good night

Yes, the milk is frozen. Some bottles are 8 oz and a few are 4 oz. There are about 10: 8 oz bottles and 4-5: 4 oz bottles. I have kept them in the deepest part of the our freezer. The glass bottles are sturdy I would say (the are the evenflo glass bottles)

Good evening or morning when you see this with the time difference. :-)
Thanks so much for getting back to me and for being willing to donate.

I am trying to figure out how it could be done safely. I have a few questions:
Is the milk frozen?
what kind of bottles? and are they "sturdy" thicker glass?
how much in each bottle and how many bottles?

thanks
Nannette

Yes, I am willing to ship the milk and also provide you with my prenatal blood work. The one thing is that I stored the milk in glass bottles. Is this a problem?

Hi there,

We live in northern California and have adopted twin who are thriving on donated milk. I am trying to keep them on it through the winter so that they don't get every little cold that my older child brings home from school. Would you be willing to ship . I can provide a container coolant, replacement bags and have a fedex account so shipping is covered. And would you be willing to share your prenatal blood work?

thanks for your consideration
Nannette

Milk available in Boston

Post by dvalpin on Mon Nov 26, 2012 10:28 am

I have about 80 oz of milk that I would like to donate. My 14 week old baby is now getting all the milk he needs. I am healthy, no drugs, no smoking, no alcohol and no caffeine. However because my son didn't remove milk efficiently the first few weeks of like due to an undiagnosed tied tongue I had to deal with low milk supply. I went to Canada (where I am from) to Dr. Newman's clinic and got prescribed domperidone. I am still taking domperidone (weaning down now), plus golacta and fenugreek (also weaning down). My milk supply has been great for the past month, but I always pump a little at night. That is why I have a good stash of milk that I know I won't need. I would love to have another baby use it and not throw it out, because I know, first hand, how difficult it is for mothers to deal with low milk supply. I will be moving back to canada before the Holidays, so I would like to find my milk a home before then.
