I have about 100 oz in the freezer that I don't need. I'd like to donate, but I take Zoloft, Thyroxine (thyroid medication), and occasionally (once or twice a month) use medical marijuana for back pain (I have a prescription). I know because of this I'd probably need to donate to an individual as I wouldn't pass the screening process. In your opinion, would someone be interested in accepting my milk? Or, would it be considered too "tainted".

Post your offer here.. I think you will find a taker<br><a href="http://milkshare.forumotion.com/" target="_blank">http://milkshare.forumotion.com/</a><br><br>
One thing to consider.. the average factory farmed milk cow / non organic crop would have way more chemicals in it.. and not be milk made for a human baby!

This is a good idea.

I'd post it on the milkshare forum anyway. As long as you're upfront about everything you're taking and why, you never know who may want your milk and who it may be a real godsend for. I had a lot of pumped milk I donated on there and didn't know if anyone wld want it as I'd had to have a c-section and be on a lot of drugs, however I had more than one taker and ended up donating to a wonderful family whose adopted daughter is having 100% donated breastmilk. So why not go ahead and post, it's the only way to know.<br><br>
Good luck!

Thanks for posting this thread. I've been thinking about this, too.

One woman's trash is another's treasure, right? I KNOW there will be someone interested in it.<br><br>
I've donated and have always taken Paxil. As long as you're upfront about it, I think it's fine to offer. It is very generous of you to consider donating!<br><br>
ETA: UGH -- I DID NOT mean that your breastmilk was trash. I just re-read my post and didn't like the way it sounds. I mean that you shouldn't throw it out like trash (not that you were going to) because it could be gold to someone else. If I were in the market for milk I wouldn't have a problem with yours. Sorry if my post sounded snide.

Ditto MilkShare. There are many parents that would still prefer your milk (though I wouldn't call it less than perfect necessarily, just .. altered a bit maybe?) over the alternative. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">
