|Milk has taken over our freezer!|
I probably have 80 freezer bags of milk - so much that I had to take most of it to the rental house freezer.
Last Friday I got a call from a nurse that I had been talking to. She had a new patient that had been panicking because she was already having to give her newborn daughter formula and was unable to find a local donor milk bank. The nurse had remembered how much milk I had and called to see if I would be interested in donating my milk. I have always thought milk sharing was weird and I personally wouldn't want to feed my baby someone else's milk. (just my opinion). This patient is a pediatrician along with her husband so she knew the risks of donor milk. I thought about this overnight and decided I would donate 20 bags of milk. (I still have around 60 bags). The other patient called me and we set up a time the next day to meet. She brought me a new box of freezer bags and I handed over my hard earned milk! Although I do not plan on donating anymore of my milk, I am glad I could help another mom.
Really hoping it is good karma ;)
