I am going on a vacation without my baby, 1 yo. I am going to pump while I am away to keep up my supply, but I don't really need to save the milk because I don't plan on being away from him again. Also I think it would be difficult to keep it cold during the long day of travel to get home. But I hate to just dump all that milk! I was wondering if there is a way to donate it. Would I contact the local hospital? Or is there a reputable organization to contact? Has anyone done this?
You can post on HumanMilk4HumanBabies on Facebook. There's one for each state so post in the state you are traveling to. I'm sure someone would love to have it.
You can also post on Milkshare.org or .com...can't remember.
