what do i do with this milk?..

So dd is getting too much foremilk making her poop bright green. The LC told me to pump just a bit before I feed her so that she gets more hindmilk (and to pump a little less each time so that I don't keep making that much). Anyway... what do I do with the pumped milk? If it is all foremilk should I save it even though her problem is getting too much foremilk in the first place?

You could keep it (frozen for 6 months) in case you have a supply emergency later. Could it be donated?

Agree with pp- also I am not sure you will correct the problem doing whatyou are doing. Have you checked out kellymom.com about oversupply. What I dd to correct my HUGE oversupply issue was nurse on one side for up to 4 hours- it took a good 2 weeks to fix things but it did work eventually

I had to do something kind of like this, I had one breast supplying more than the other with 1st dd, then had to have some scar tissue removed after she weaned like 7 years ago. And now I have to over nurse on that side to maintain balance. Makes no sense to me either. But I have never heard of a foremilk and aftermilk issue needing pumping either. But I live in a small town and my experiences are limited to what I have dealt with here. What does your gut tell you to do? Sometimes a mommy's intuition is the best medicine around...
