Re: I am going to be a donor & need your help..

Great job helping her out! I donoted to a milk bank but only four ounces a day. That will be quite a lot to meet all of her baby's needs. Every bit of breastmilk that child gets will help, though, so even if you only pump enough for one feeding a day, you are helping a lot!

Does the mom have any milk supply left? If so, could she stop taking the bcp (maybe try the mini pill instead) and work on getting her own supply back up. Again, even partial feeding is better than none.

I am quite upset that her doctor would prescribe bcp for her while bfing!! It is known that they affect milk supply and that is why the minipill is prescribed to nursing moms.
