Hello wuckies! My son is 5 months old, and is exclusively BFing. I had been pumping since he was born because I had planned to return to work in 6 weeks. Well, long story short, my 22 year old sister with Down Syndrome unexpectedly came to live with us, so as of now, I'm still not working. She used to be very independent, but not as much now since my parents divorced. I've been working with her. Anyway, I was then stuck with over 100 oz of breast milk I no longer needed! So as of right now, I'm going through the process of donating to the National Milk Bank. They feed the donations to premature and sick babies. They screen THOROUGHLY. It's relieving to see how many hoops I have to jump through though, because it shows they want to make sure these babies are drinking only the best. It really warms my heart to imagine the babies who will benefit from my donation. It would tear me up to have to discard all that milk. Has anyone else ever donated?

I never did with my two kids but that is so awesome of you to do. I am sure many would appreciate it and what an awesome way to pay it forward.

I never donated it either, but it is an awesome thing to do. There are some mom's that just can't produce breast milk and there are some babies that really need it.

I have issues producing so I was never able to donate because I didn't even have enough for my own, let alone anyone else's child. I really think it's wonderful that you're donating to help someone else.

Thanks everyone. I'm so excited! I had to fill out this questionnaire, then they sent me a box with a thermometer, vials to collect blood, and swabs for my cheeks. I had to put the thermometer in my freezer for at least an hour so they can make sure my freezer is an adequate temp for the frozen milk. A phlebotomist is going to come to my house and draw blood for them to test. I also had to swab my own cheeks and mail it to them so they can make a DNA profile to match with my milk. They're also going to fax my doctor and my son's pediatrician to make sure there's nothing funny in our medical histories. So yea, they really do dot every I and cross every T.

That's what my step daughter did. she was a surrogate mom and after leaving the family with as much Milk as she could the when it was time to go home she continued to pump to she could donate it.

I think its great what you're doing helping other babies get the best milk a mother can give.

Wow...your stepdaughter is a truly helpful person. To carry a child for someone is just an indescribable good deed. Does she have any children of her own?
