Thank you for being willing to donate. We live in Northern California and have adopted twins. I was able to breast feed them for the first 5 1/2 months with the help of herbs, meds and an SNS. Since then we have relied entirely on donor milk. They are doing really well and I am hoping to keep them on breast milk through the winter to try and keep the from getting every little cold my 8 year old brings home from school. I have a fedex account and can provide a container, coolant, replacement bags and arrange for pick up of the milk at your home. (no drop off required :-). With two to feed we are always in need and would be interested in all that you have to spare.
thank you for your consideration

- this milk has been scalded due to lipase issues - basically an excess enzyme causes the fat in my milk to break down and taste bad quickly, and the heat of scalding inactivates the enzyme and keeps the milk tasting good. It is not harmful, please see Kellymom for more info, or message me and I can answer any questions!
- Scalded = 145 degrees F for 1 minute
- due to this scalding, my LC recommended no more than 50% of a babys daily intake being scalded milk as some vitamins also are broken down.
- the milk is from October 2011 through sometime spring 2012. I just tried a couple of the oldest milks and they smelled and tasted fine
- milk was stored in a regular freezer that pretty much only houses milk, so infrequently opened
- non-drinker, non-smoker, no medications (not even IB or tylenol), partially organic food diet, hormone free dairy
Please let me know if you are interested in some or hopefully all of this milk. If you feel that Oct. 2011 is too old, I understand and will provide forward from whatever date you like.
Hoping to drop this off this week with someone!!
