Re: Lemme see your stash!

I don't have a pic, but I have about 50-60 oz as a just in case I need it stash. I want to have more, I just cannot seem to get motivated enough to pump. I would love to have enough to donate. I just recently became a SAHM to my 9 week old and 2 year old, maybe I will find the time to pump more. DS is going through a growth spurt right now, If i pump between feedings he just wants the milk after his next feeding cause he is still hungry.

Re: Lemme see your stash!

bleh... I went to take a picture, it all jumped out at me, then I lost my camera (it was *just* in my hand I swear) But I have over 100oz, 60 going to a donor mom. DS is 10 weeks, not too shabby!

I have a q for you ladies that donate (sorry to hijack) Some of your bags look really really full! Like bursting at the seams full! I read not to put more then 6oz in the lanisoh bags or they would leak when you warmed them. My donor mom asked me to fill them full, and I assumed that was 6oz, am I shorting her? I know she's just trying to get her monies worth out of the bags, but I didn't want to pack them and have them all burst on her. Humm.

I also have super white milk but when it is frozen it looks a little darker. Some mamas say they get blue/green/yellow etc. I haven't had any like that! It would probably freak me out!

I love to see so many donor moms way to go ladies for donating and accepting donor milk!

This is my stash:

On the right is my DD, on the left is her friend J, who receives all of my excess milk. Sorry for not showing faces, but he's not my baby so I don't want to post his face. )

The mom i used to get donor milk from filled them to 8oz (using Lanisoh) and i would get a leak maybe 1 bag out of 25. I warm mine in the sink so; i just grab it and put it in a cup and then put that into a bowl to de-thaw. ( i might lose a 1/2oz)

Re: Lemme see your stash!

Guess I need to take a pic! I have probably 350 or so ounces in the freezer, but I'm starting to have supply issues so it's depleting fast. I better get to pumping! Thanks for the inspiration, ladies!

Re: Lemme see your stash!

These stashes make my heart melt. They are so lovely. They also make me realize that I REALLY need to start pumping and starting my stash for sippies, cereal, when DD is sick, and just in case I lose my milk when we get pregnant again!!
