Re: Would you do it? Donor Milk?

Honestly, I think that if someone is willing to donate, they are more than likely the type of person who keeps up with their health because they are obviously providing breast milk for one of their own. It did freak my DH out at first, but I compared it to drinking cow's milk from hundreds of cows, how is that any different? Honestly, I'd rather give my children breast milk from 1 or 2 women than milk from hundreds of different cows that wasn't meant for them!
Precisely! That was my argument as well, on both sides.
