Try milkshare. I have had really good luck with milk. Most of my milk I have had to drive very far for or pay for shipping (which is pricey quickly) but Ophie is 6 months old and exclusively bf.
I have to tell you -its hard and it is an emotional roller coaster because you never know when/if more milk will come but it has been a battle I have chosen to fight.
May the milk find you

DH : Fur mamma to 2 pugs and 1 grey kitty - its a zoo around here! Feb 2013..Will you help feed our new blessing?
Also important is the fact that auto-immune diseases can run in families, and breastfeeding protects BABIES from becoming children or adults with diabetes and other auto-immune disorders...so if you can find a way to continue to nurse your baby, it can keep them from suffering from this as well. No gaurantee, but a stronger possibility.
Again, I would contact your local LLL, and ask them to put you in contact with the Professional Liason Department (or PL department). They will have access to the most recent and the most relevant research, and can share it with you.
I hope this helps.

Although it is a fact that receiving breastmilk as an infant does prevent against developing diabetes, it is not true that breastfeeding will put a diabetic mother in to remission. At least not if the mother has type 1 diabetes. I'm not as familiar with Type 2, so perhaps it can help that. But in type 1, your pancreas does not create insulin. Breastfeeding will not cause your body to create insulin.
