HI!
I'm Rabbitt Due to hormone imbalances I am not able to produce enough milk, despite my greatest efforts, to feed my sweet little 6 month old son Kai-mana. We have a great BFing relationship after much hard working learning to use the Lact-aid SNS. I have one wonderful donor but she is not able to produce anywhere near as much as he is eating these days, so I'm here to ask if there are any other sweet mamas out there who are able to share the gift of milk with us. He is taking about 12-16 oz a day in supplement. Any extra milk would be such a blessing & VERY much appreciated. He means the world to me & I would love it if he was able to receive the healthiest start to life with some good ol' mommy milkies
Thanks mamas!

Aw Rabbitt, I hope you find some. I swear, if TTC weren't coming up for DH and I (I hope..).. I'd try to induce lactation again, I miss pumping and donating.

Good luck, Mama!!

Hi I'm not sure where you are located but I am in SE Portland and *might* be able to help. My youngest is 13mo however... I don't know if that makes a diff in the milk as much or not. When I did pump I would generally only get about 6oz a day so not much but I would be willing to try and help cause I know how important bfing was to me and my babes and I would hate to see someone who needs it go w/o. Let me know...

I just sent up around 70 ounces to you via dani76 - hope that helps! It is newborn milk - I don't know if that makes a huge difference, but my DD was gaining 3/4 lb a week on it :-)

My offer still stands! Dunno when this baby is coming (any day/week now), but I'll be able to send you some milk within a month after, I'm sure.

I never did, but it's ok, I've been working through fears and meditating... I think I'll be alright! Thanks!

I just like knowing I can help fill a baby tummy with good milks!

My milk is in full force! I may start pumping today, since baby seems to like nursing all night and sleeping all day. LMK how you want to arrange everything.

PM'd you again.. about probably the smallest donation ever (LOL) but you seem appreciative of milk and that's what I look for when finding someone in need.
