Wanting to donate EBM
Posted 30 August 2012 - 03:09 PM
I currently have 6.5L of EBM in my chest freezer. I BF for 3 months and expressed during that time. We discovered after this time bubs can't tolerate the gluten coming through my milk. I have kept the milk "just in case" he changes, but it isn't happending. Is a milk bank the only option? I would hate to bin it, l worked so bloody hard for it. But my bubs hates it...but l know a bubs out there would appreciate it. It was expressed during 1/11/2011 - 15/1/2012 so l know l only have 12 months max for this milk to be used.

I gave a heap of my frozen milk away through the FB group that Carolyn mentioned ^^ There are a number of people who for whatever reason want to keep topping up with human milk rather than formula, and there are often people who will volunteer to drive it around the city if they're going that way. I think I posted in response to a request and someone turned up the next day to pick it all up!
It's precious stuff and given the effort it takes to express it all, I like the idea of someone making use of it rather than throwing it all down the sink.

I really hope milk-sharing becomes a lot more mainstream.
