In search of donor milk for 7 month old gluten- and dairy-free baby boy

Post by hudsonvalleymama on Tue Oct 20, 2015 9:23 am

Hi Mamas. Breastfeeding has been a challenge for us from the start -- we had a lip-tie and tongue-tie, and lots of pain for this mama for the first 12 weeks. We persevered, but as soon as I returned to work at 5 months, my supply tanked. I am currently pumping an average of 2 to 3 ounces per day, total. My little one is getting 15 or so ounces a day at daycare while I am away from him. It's not sustainable.

I'm hoping to make sure he only gets breastmilk before his first birthday, but my freezer stash has run out. We were fortunate to get in contact with a local mama who donated several hundred ounces and kept us going for the last few weeks. Unfortunately, that is about to run out, too.

We are a gluten-free home, and my son has shown signs of a dairy sensitivity, so we are dairy-free (and mostly soy-free), too. If you happen to be an allergen-free mama, too, please let us know. I really don't want to be forced to put him on a hypoallergenic formula that's full of corn syrup solids.

We are located in Highland, NY, about an hour and a half north of NYC and an hour and change south of Albany. Any leads are gratefully accepted! Thanks in advance.
