Hi Carol,

Congratulations on your baby!

I'm so sorry but the milk was picked up a few weeks ago. Good luck finding donors - it is an awesome thing you are doing for your new baby! Both batches of my milk have gone to families with adopted babies who were exclusively fed donated breastmilk, so whatever proportion you decide to aim for please know that it is possible.

Very best wishes,

Milon

Hi Milon,
Is the second half of your stash still available? I live in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn and am looking for a local donor. My husband and I just adopted a baby girl, who is now five weeks old. Been feeding her formula, but would love to have her on at least some breast milk. I could pick up.
Let me know!
Thanks much,
Carol

More milk to donate

Post by mnagi on Mon Jul 12, 2010 7:19 pm

Dear mamas,

I have another c.200oz of breastmilk available for immediate donation. This is the other half of the "stash" I previously donated, so all details are identical to those in my previous post (below) except that this has been stored in a stand-alone freezer so is good for much longer. Now that my son is 6 months old I feel ready to part with it and would love for it to go to a family in need. It is colostrum-rich and would be ideal for a newborn.

Pick up in Cobble Hill (handy for several subway lines).

Best wishes,

Milon

No problem! Best wishes to you, too. If you hear of anyone else with milk in her freezer, please let us know!

Dear Joye,

I'm afraid the milk has already been donated. Sorry I didn't post a follow up saying this sooner.
Congratulations on your adoption plans! I think it is absolutely awesome that you are planning to feed your baby donated breastmilk and I wish you the very best on your journey.

Best wishes,

Milon Nagi

Hi Milon

We've just finalized a match with a birth mom this morning (4-14) and would LOVE to get your milk. It would be such a gift, as even though I tried to induce lactation for our first adopted child, I could never make more than 6 oz. total at my "peak."

This baby is due in the early fall, but we have a deep freeze and I'm sure your millk will be fine. Having colostrum would be an absolute delight, but any and all milk you have, regardless of date, would be very welcome. The hospital is adoption-friendly and very welcoming about donated milk.

This will be our second adopted child, and the donated BM that we got for our oldest child was almost like a wonder drug. She has hardly ever been sick (in spite of serious birth family diseases), and she has grown beautifully, is very intelligent, etc. To even think about giving the new baby formula with corn syrup, etc., makes us feel kind of sick.

We live in Long Beach, so Brooklyn is a short drive. Let me know if you're interested or want pictures of us or our firstborn. I'm on sabbatical and am free just about any time. Thanks for considering us!

c.200oz newborn milk available for pickup in Brooklyn

Post by mnagi on Tue Mar 30, 2010 11:04 am

Dear mamas,

I have around 200oz of breastmilk for immediate donation to a family in need. Each container is
labelled with the date of pumping which ranges from approx. 5-23 January. It
has been stored in the separate freezer compartment of my refrigerator so is
good up to 3-4 months. As it's all from the first 3-4 weeks of my son's life,
it's colostrum rich and perfect for a very new baby.

I am a non-smoker, non-drinker, free of any communicable diseases etc - I'm sure
my midwife will be happy to vouch for my health.

My son was born by c-section on December 30th, a few days before the first of
this milk was pumped, so I'm not sure to what extent the drugs associated with
the section will still have been in my system. During this period I also took
the following, all of which I was repeatedly reassured are perfectly safe for
breastfeeding (and of course my son was fed the same milk). I do have notes of
the specific dates and dosages if this is a concern:
- Percocet (first 1-2 days only)
- Advil
- Tylenol
- Methergine (3 days)

Despite difficult circumstances I was blessed with a good supply and with a son
who began breastfeeding exclusively soon after coming home from the NICU, hence
the large store of milk.

I'd love this to go to a family in need of donation, especially as I have a huge
emotional connection to the milk due to the circumstances under which it was
pumped. You would need to pick it up from me in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn (very handy for several subway lines).

Best wishes,

Milon
