Frozen breastmilk to give away

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I live in Santa Barbara, Ca and I have a 12 week old baby boy. I am producing a lot more breastmilk than he can eat. I have tons of extra breastmilk I need to give away. I have donated some of my milk to a milk bank already but still have a lot more I can get ride of. I don't want to see it go to waist so anybody who is interested just let me know. Also I am not taking any medication. I had all the test work done for the milk bank so I am in good health. Let me know if anybody is interested.

Thanks, Alayna

Not sure if you're too far away but this mother was diagnosed with cancer while pregnant and is looking for breastmilk donations. Her baby is due right around this time and she is in orange county.

That is a little far for me to drive with two boys. I can look into see how to ship frozen milk. If it is safe to ship it I would not have a problem with that.

I hear you, its too far for me to drive from San Diego as well. If shipping works out for you, there's also a mom in my moms group who needs breastmilk due to cancer as well.

you could always make some soap with it.

I ship frozen milk all the time.  Look up modern milksharing on Facebook. They give great suggestions for how to do it with videos.  If you don't already, start freezing your milk flat.  Makes packaging and shipping so much easier.  Also if you don't want to ship, you can always post on human milk 4 human babies or eats on feets (in your area). There seems to be a shortage of donors lately.  

 

PS.  Shipping costs are the responsibility of the recipient not you.  You package the milk and bring it to the UPS/FedEx store and call the person.  They give their payment info right over the phone.  It's pretty easy.  Also you should ask for milk storage bags in return.  Most are willing to send them seeing you are doing them such a huge favor.
