wwyd a milkshare etiqutte question

I dontated to the same mama for about 4 times or so. I've always used reusable containers for the milk. She felt like it was easier to defrost that way and I liked not having to get more bags etc.

she went to europe with her son and weaned him to goat's milk. She told me before she left she'd send me my containers...she never did.. I am now really short on containers and would like to use them again with another mama.

I think she's back from Europe.. should I nicely ask her or forget about it? we exchanged containers so many times i'm not even sure how many she has of mine anymore?

I would send a gentle reminder...

BTW - I have a TON of re-useable bottles... We intentionally started using milk that was in bottles so that I could send them to you... Do you need me to mail them or will you be okay until we can meet up? I emailed you back with a hopeful date!

I would send a reminder. As a fellow-milkshare mommy, I've had to remind my donor moms on more than one occasion to send bags, return stuff, etc.

Sometimes it's like herding cats , but it's still rewarding
