Donating Breastmilk: A New Solution

I was blessed with a great milk supply when the babies were hospitalized. With J, I filled a deep freezer (which we actually bought for that purpose), and he had a mix of breast milk and formula for his first year. M was a totally different story.

I was distraught–and could not fathom the idea of throwing away thousands of ounces of my milk. I wrote an entire post about how I donated my milk, which ended up being a really beautiful gift for me. Apparently, some hospitals are now getting involved in the process. I think it is wonderful for everyone involved! Click here to read the article.
