I am writing this on behalf of a good friend of mine. She is unable to produce enough breastmilk for her 4 month old baby girl, so she has been relying on donated breastmilk to make up the difference. However, little Alexa has been extremely colicky and sick since birth. Her stool contained blood and mucous on a regular basis. Kara took the baby to a specialist where she was diagnosed with a milk protein allergy.

She was able to find a small amount of dairy free milk, and once on it, little Alexa did much better. The problem is that it is very difficult to find dairy free milk. She has been posting on MilkShare, Human Milk 4 Human Babies and Eats on Feets. She has a couple moms who are able to provide a few oz a day, but it's not enough to meet all of Alexa's needs. She is cutting the dairy free milk with goat's milk to help it stretch, because even the fully hydrolized formulas make her sick.

For anyone who is interested, here is her story:

She is in Emmaus, PA and is willing to ship or pick up milk. I am in Dutchess County, NY and if anyone is near me, I would be willing to take the milk and ship it to her. For help with shipping, please see if this is something you are interested in.

If any of you ladies are dairy-free and have a freezer stash of breastmilk that you don't know what to do with, please contact me at bekki.hill (at) gmail (dot) com and I will put you two in touch!
