Hi all, I'm looking for breast milk for my 3-month-old daughter. I have IGT / HPTB and suffer from severe & chronic low milk supply. I've been doing everything to increase supply... I was on domperidone and getting 4oz a day, but had to stop taking it because we couldn't afford the prescription and now I'm getting only 1oz a day. We've had her on exclusively breast milk through some generous donations, but our stash is about to run out. If anybody has extra please let me know. I would be so grateful. I can replace milk storage bags with either Lansinoh or Medela. Unfortunately can't afford to travel outside of Tucson as we are both unemployed so $ is very, very tight. Thank you!!!!
Looking for Donor Milk in Tucson
Have you looked at www.milkshare.com? I donated through there many years ago to a local mama. Then when we adopted I found 4 donors. 1 was in Phx (and was only a single donation,) 2 were in town, and 1 was from out of town, but she traveled here frequently and would bring the milk to me.
That's new. It wasn't like that before. You could also try www.asklenore.info. It's kind of a long shot, but you never know.

hi there! we've had quite a few donations, but our stash is running out and we are always open to more donors. i would be very grateful! i was able to get some more dom, and am now getting about 6oz a day total which is better than nothing, eh? but my baby takes about 40oz a day, so we're going through donor milk really fast. thanks so much for considering helping out!
By any chance do you still have any milk you are able to donate? We will pay for the supply bags and can come pick it up or meet you and pay for gas money.
Due to drugs and other social issues he was placed in our care while mom tries to get her life together. The baby boy is now (almost) 5 months old, weighing 8 and a half pounds, and doing better than expected. Of course he has many different diagnoses but all the doctors feel he will out grow and recover from each of them. He was re-hospitalized in February with cardiac arrest due to a virus he caught so his immune system was again wiped out from all the antibiotics they were trialing along with his immature immune and nervous system he has from being born so early. He is such a fighter and we have no doubt that he will grow up to be a strong, with his relentless attitude and God's hands; however he is not able to tolerate any formula which makes his ability to thrive difficult. We have tried every formula on the market we know of (neosure, neocate, enfamil, nutramigen, etc) and he is not able to handle it. The doctors are not sure if it is a sensitivity or an allergy but for whatever reason he is only able to tolerate breast milk- he is a completely different baby with breast milk. (No rash, swelling, crying, stool issues, etc). We were blessed to have a nurse donate three weeks worth however he is almost completely out so we are searching everywhere to see if it is possible to get breast milk donated for him. If you do have any left and are willing to donate it feel free to get back to me anytime, if not thank you for offering it to others before!
Hi, just wanted to update that we are now at 9 months. I've kept my baby breastfed, almost exclusively through donor milk, since 8 weeks. I am hoping to get to 1 year postpartum. I'd planned to breastfeed until 2 or 3 years old, but I really would just be happy to make it to one year without having to give her another ounce of formula. I have had donations from 21 fantastic women. I am looking for more immediately because we are down to 1 or 2 days (stretching it) of breastmilk in our stash. If anyone has some they could spare, I would so appreciate it. Also, if you know of any breastfeeding mamas, maybe you could let them know if they ever have a surplus, that there are people looking for donations? I know there have got to be many moms in this city with freezers full of extra milk!
Here's a link to my story. I have IGT, so my breasts are structurally not capable of producing more than 1oz of milk a day without taking domperidone (which I did take, but had to stop taking it for medical reasons).
Thank you for your time and for considering being a milk donor!
I am in Tucson and have some milk i could donate. My email is email@example.com. my name is lauren. I exclusively pump and bottle feed my son, i have a minimum of 200you frozen oz i could donate now but possibly more. My son was a late term premie and is now 5i weeks old and has already gained 2 and a half lbs! Contact me if interested!
Are you still in need of breastmilk? I'm a nurse who just had a baby and have been pumping to build up stock before I return to work but now have so much milk I can't store anymore. I have at least 100 ounces I need to donate now to make room in my freezer. In 3 weeks since I started pumping I have banked almost 400 ounces of breastmilk. I occasionally take colace, senna, and zyrtec. I take a prenatal vitamin everyday. I do not smoke or drink alcohol, and rarely have a glass of caffeine.
Hello! We're definitely still looking for donor milk. My baby is thriving. We tried switching to cow's milk, but she is not ready for it yet -- projectile vomiting ensued. Yuck! She does love her milks, and we are grateful for any amount anyone would like to share. She is now 14 months. I'd planned to nurse until at least age 2, so I'm hoping to give her breastmilk until then or as far as we can get! Thanks very much to all you marvelous donors.
