I dont give bottles, so I am not sure what to do with all this. I am a non smoker, drinker, ect. I have nursed all my kids, this being my 4th. The lactation consultant here suggested donating it, but there is a huge screening process I guess. I am sure I have records or could get them for someone saying I dont have Hep or AIDS or anything.
If anyone wants this, or knows someone who could use it, it is all stored in 70 ml bottles from the hospital, with labels with my name, number and time and date of pumping session. Email me with ideas people, I would seriously get sick to my stomach to throw it all out, I have over 3 huge bags full.
***** I am meeting with someone tomarrow to drop off the milk! If something changes, ill let you all know! Thanks for all the replys!
Erika, wife to and Mommy to born in 05, born in 06, born in 08! Ive had 8 miscarriages and am for a sticky bean in December 2012! I and hope for a !
I was a donor, and the screening process was actually quite simple (some paperwork to fill out, a form to send to my doctor, and bloodwork that they paid for, I just had to stop at the lab and get it drawn). They will be especially thrilled to have newborn milk, that is saved for the tiniest/sickest babies, and it is not as easy to come by.
The women there are so nice, and they will try to work with you to make the process run as smoothly as possible. You can call them at: (269) 341-8849.
I'm so glad your baby is coming a home! What a gift your milk will be to another child, particularly one who is premature or very ill.

I've been following your story and I'm so excited that Benjamin is coming home tomorrow! I hope you've had the opportunity to find someone who can use your breastmilk. If not, contact the Breastfeeding Center of Ann Arbor through www.center4cby.com. They're a bank for Bronson hospital, and a lot closer than Kalamazoo!
Congratulations. I wish I could give you a big hug!
