My DD reverse cycled for two months so I ended up donating 2-300 ounces and used the rest of the milk when I lost mine while I was pregnant. I will pump again this time to build up my freezer stash, even though I may end up being a WAHM and not need ing to pump, but I like the idea of the "just in case" milk because, well, you never know. I told my DH I would prefer him to find human milk to feed out DD if something were to happen to me, and he would need a little time to find a donor, so he'd have to have something on hand to feed the baby until then!
