That $15 an oz guy reminds me of those creepy guys on Craigslist looking to buy used/unwashed panties. Blech.

Re: Donating Breastmilk

I donated through the Central Ohio Milk Bank. They test donors and milk and they use tge milk through medical prescription, often for hospitalized premies.

Re: Donating Breastmilk

I will be donating to a friend this time around. Her daughter has a condition and breastmilk helps, but we don't have a milk bank in the hospital here, and the other hospital only gives their milk to NICU babies, which she isn't.

Re: Donating Breastmilk

Kind of off topic, but i am unable to breast feed or produce by pump, but bf had always been very important to me and i still am sad i never was able to do it. Any way, my daughter is 2.5 yrs and was unable to drink what i was able to pump for the very short time i was able to... She gets sick a lot and I've been wondering if i were able to find a donor i trusted, would it be beneficial to her at this age?

Have you tried goats milk? That's pretty nutritious and easy on the stomach.

I donated a months worth of breastmilk to a mom on Milkshare. I love that you can deal with the recipient first hand and there's no fee's, ect.
