Re: Donor milk?

If I could get it? Sure! My first was FF, and had constipation issues on it constantly, BM would have been so much easier on her gut, particularly at first. This one has had no such issues except during that one day that I had to FF because I couldn't get her to latch.

I didn't realize there is a Facebook group. Thanks for letting me know, I have requested to join.

I'd rather give donor milk from a human than donor milk from a cow.

I would only use it from a close, dear friend or family member. If that was not available, formula would be my next best option.

I think breastmilk is totally rad but I dont think its the magic cure-all some people believe it to be (obviously there are some babies that it can be a wonderful gift to).

Sure would! I produce a lot and whenever DS weans I'll continue to pump and donate for at least a month or two. It's a while off, but if someone needed it, I'd do it.
