Hi there! My daughter Finley is 3 months old now and I have been exclusively pumping since she was born because I had severe thrush and she doesn't have the patience to wait for my letdown. My husband has nicknamed her "boogie" because she moves so much. I can't pump anymore as for multiple reasons, such as my sanity, it ruining my marriage because I am so miserable, not spending any time with my daughter on a daily basis (at one point I was on the breastpump for 8 hours a day), my husband not able to leave the house to earn us a living because I need him to watch the baby, etc. She has a milk protein allergy and can only receive donor milk from someone who has been off all dairy for at least 2 weeks prior to donation, at least until she is 6 months old. I so desperately want her to receive breastmilk, and am at a loss of what to do. I am truly heartbroken over the whole situation. I also can not afford $1 an ounce. The most I would be able to afford each month is 35 cents an ounce for someone that would be willing to pump for me. I have a brand new medela pump in style advanced backpack that I would be willing to donate to the cause as well (I've only used it for one week), as well as all kinds of breastpumping/feeding paraphinalia. I live in Palm Desert, CA so the milk would need to be shipped, (unless you live within a few hours drive of me) which of course I would pay for (up to $100). If you are interested in the proposition, please contact me. Feel free to look me up on facebook under Jennifer Wilhite Fahrenthold if you would like to see the sweet baby girl whose health you would be fortifying.
