My FB status today read:
THIS is what 700-800 ounces of liquid gold looks like on it's way to the National Milk Bank.
I am very blessed and fortunate to have had a very easy time with breastfeeding. We have never had a problem latching or nursing and I have always had not only enough milk to support my growing baby girl, but I have been able to build a pretty sizable stash of extra milk in my freezer. Actually, I was able to look into donating some of it. And by some of it... I mean about 7 gallons of it. Wowza! I must say, I'm pretty proud of myself and my body. What an awesome gift!
After several weeks of screenings, questionnaires and tests, I made my first donation to the National Milk Bank. The Milk Bank will use the milk to create life-saving feeding supplies for NICU babies. I am blessed and honored to be able to be a part of something so wonderful. I plan to continue to pump and donate as much as I can. Cheers!
