Hi, I recently had a little girl and both after her delivery and my sons I have had excess breast milk. I would like to give it away to a family in need. I recognize the importance of it and want to pass it on where it could be helpful. The reason why I am not donating it is because we went to Honduras this past February. We were only in the capital where there is no malaria but because the country is still endemic as a whole they will not let me donate till it has been a year since we visited. I currently have a freezer full of milk and I don't want it to go to waste seeing as I know my little one won't be able to drink it all. I am otherwise healthy and happy to answer any questions related to my breast milk.
One can join the FB page - Human Milk 4 Human Babies - and they will be able to point them in the right direction for donating milk. Sometimes they facilitate donation directly to another mother, sometimes they advise a particular milk bank.
