ds was born on 12/31 and was in the NICU for 9 days. i was pumping like a madwoman the whole time and he was off using a bottle by 3rd day at home so i have a serious stockpile of milk that i'd love to donate to someone. i know there's a facebook page, but i don't do facebook, will i be forced to create a facebook page just to donate the milk or is there another option outside of going through a company that charges $$?

 If you are located in MI I know a child who, I'm pretty sure, still needs breast milk. Let me know if you are and I'll give you the info.

Just a gentle reminder-- we cannot host posts offering or soliciting breastmilk. Please keep it to private message and off the boards. Thanks!

I hope that this is within the UA...there is a group on Facebook called Eats On Feets that pairs up moms looking to donate milk with moms who are in need.

 

I'm sure you'll make some mama & baby's day!
