Re: Pictures of my freezer stash

wow that's awesome! I'm also curious what kind of pump you use (i'm having to supplement the twins) that is so impressive and inspiring...

whatever you don't get used up; either save it for when they get sick or you can donate it to milkshare.com

Re: Pictures of my freezer stash

Save a bag for pinkeye! DD contracted pinkeye from my friend's kid when she was 2. My friend was still BFing and was able to treat her son with a couple drops of EBM twice a day. We used the doc's script. Her son's pinkeye cleared up in 1/2 the time without the painful drops and it was FREE.
I'm BFing DD2 now and I'm planning to keep a bag or two in the freezer after weaning just for this purpose.
