    I'm on their page but haven't donated through them. I always had friends tht were in need or a friend of a friend. A lot of the surrogates I know donate through them. I I had a pump I'd give you some since I already have more than enough.

  • Julie- I am going to organize my chest freezer today and see how my stash is but I would be happy to donate to you if you'd like. Also, I was going to stop pumping soon but I could keep pumping and give you the fresh stuff if you'd like.

  • I also need to see how much milk I have in my freezer stash (it's at my aunt's house so I just need to get over there to check it out). 

    If I think I have enough for Graeme, I might be able to give you some too. I had my milk tested and it's pretty high fat/cals (26-35 kcals/oz). I'd love to be able to help you... I'll get back to you in the next week or so. Or shoot me a msg to remind me if I forget!

    My sister gave me her pump and it's currently just sitting in my closet for the next couple of months. I'd be happy to lend it to you if you think you'd be able to help out Jewels.

    the lactation consultant at CHOP did it for me! They didn't come out and offer...I had to ask (after another mom had it done). She took about 5mL from each pumping session for 24 hours. I have no idea how they do it, but she had the numbers back in about an hour and it was free.

    I have an appt tomorrow, let me make sure that much stimulation wouldn't put me in labor. Otherwise I'm game, although we'll probably only get colostrum and I don't know if that's what they need. It would be nice to stop leaking so much though.

  • I have nothing to contribute, just want to say how awesome it is to see so many others willing to help out. This is a great group of ladies!

  • Hey gals.  You people rock my world.  I'm full of such gratitude!

    If anyone does have milk, or wants to give me some, I would probably take it.  Finn's reflux has been so bad and causing lot of breathing issues, so I figured out that he IS getting formula based on nurse's suspicions and it was confirmed (by smell).  Luckily yesterday he only got 1 formula feed out of 8 and I'm hoping we can keep him that way.  Nothing against formula at all, but he only started having reflux when they started him on it. :-(  My supply has been slowly going up but they just upped Isla's feeds so who knows how long I can keep up.  I am also getting a ton from a friend of mine, so I'll probably be good for a while, but just in case!  Keep me in mind!  It's proven that very premature babies do better on breastmilk, mine are SUPER preemies... so anything to prevent NECK (necrotizing fasciitis).  I'm also worried about the GMO's in formula since Pennsy only uses Similiac products.  And Finn cried hysterically yesterday for a couple of hours, so I think he's in pain... anything to help my little guy.

    Just FB msg me or if you have email, email me... don't want to post here because it's my first and last name (with middle initial k) at gmail dot com.  

    Thank you SO much ladies!

    Oh and don't need colostrum... it was good in the beginning but now that they are on full feeds, just milk.  Thank you for offering though!!  Especially since you're already doing such a selfless act! :-)
