DH wants me to throw away my frozen breastmilk!

I can't bring myself to do it. I'm not using, it's just sitting there in my freezer. DS won't take a bottle. I feel so bad tossing it! I can't do it! What else can I do with it.

Can you donate it? You might not be able to donate it to a hospital or anything formal if it's been frozen a while, but another mama might be able to use it (I ran out QUICK when I went back to work full time!)

You could just keep it and use it in your babies food when you get to that point.

I use mine for making up cereal, but in Michigan we have a breastmilk bank that you can donate too (you donate frozen milk) they accept a minimum of 100 oz.

Soap? I can't send it to a milk bank because it doesn't meet the minimum requirement. I have about 50oz. I posted on MilkShare but only people have responded asking me to ship and I really don't want to go through all that.

Add it to your kids cereal or food. Give it in a sippy cold.

I've cooked with mine. Mixed in in recipes that call for milk. No one knew the difference.
