Hello!  We just adopted a newborn baby boy who is 3 weeks old now :) & would love to keep him on breast milk. I have actually been doing induced lactation/adoptive breastfeeding for him but with 8 pumps per day (for over 7 weeks) I am still only pumping a total of 4 ounces per day - only enough for 2 of his 10 feedings per day. :( We live in Lubbock (NW Texas) and would appreciate your milk so much. Of course, we would pay all expenses if you would be willing to ship to us. Or if you live within a few hours of us we would love to pick up any donations from you. Thank you so very much for any donations, leads or help you can offer!! Kimberly [email protected]

i'm sorry i live way too far to give you breast milk (overseas..) but i'm happy to hear you're not giving up but rather insisting on it... check out what dr. sears has to say about nursing adopted children.. good luck and God bless!

I don't have milk now but I just wanted to offer you encouragement. I donated to a women who managed to keep her adopted infant on bm exclusively for the six months of life. Hope! Congratulations on the arrival of your baby.

I live in North San Antonio...I don't know if that's farther away than you're looking for or if it's possible to ship that far, but I would be happy to donate milk for your LO. DD is just now seven months and REFUSES to take anything out of a bottle or sippy cup but I am away from her for work enough that I need to pump once or twice a day to keep up supply, however the milk bank in austin want's like 150oz a week for new donors and I don't get that much.... I don't think I would have enough extra to exclusively feed but right now it's just taking up space in my freezer. If you're interested feel free to email me at KateDavies45@yahoo.com or you can message me and I'll send you my cell number.
