Donate Your Breast Milk

25 01 2007

 

I have always wondered that if I had an extra supply of breast milk, if I can donate it. You can and it’s easy to do..

 

 

What do you think about donating your breast milk if you have extra? Would you do it to help the Mothers who don’t? It sounds like a great idea…

 

Do you, for one reason or another, have more breast milk than your baby needs? Great. Donate it to babies who aren’t so lucky. From Time:

Breastfeeding Supplements: How to Wean Your Baby Off

9 12 2006

It has been 8 months and counting since I have been breastfeeding my daughter. I am very proud of myself for that! I continue to nurse her until she is a year or maybe a little longer. When it comes down to weaning, I hope the process is a smooth one. Here is an article I found about trying to wean formula out of the breastfeeding diet. I am not against formula in any way, but if you had to supplement, this is a good article to read.

If you have had significant breastfeeding problems — this can include difficulty getting the baby to latch or breastfeed effectively or severely sore nipples, as well as having a slow gaining baby or a baby that, when a preemie, was given bottles — you might find yourself in a situation where you are both breastfeeding and supplementing with bottles of expressed breast milk or formula. For many mothers, this falls short of their original goal to exclusively breastfeed in order to provide the optimum nutrition and immune system boost that direct breastfeeding affords. If you are currently providing breastfeeding supplements to your baby and would like to work toward your goal to breastfeed, it’s encouraging to know that it’s entirely possible to achieve.

Breast-feeding: What every mom needs to know

24 11 2006

As a breast-feeding mom, I feel this article I found is very important. I hope it gives all breast-feeding moms some answers…

You know the benefits of breast-feeding. Breast milk contains the right balance of nutrients for your baby. It’s easier to digest than commercial formula, and the antibodies in breast milk will boost your baby’s immune system. Breast-feeding may even help you lose weight after the baby is born.

Woman kicked off plane for breast-feeding

15 11 2006

BURLINGTON, Vt. – A woman who claims she was kicked off an airplane because she was breast-feeding her baby has filed a complaint against two airlines, her attorney said.

When is it a crime to feed your child? Bottle or breast…it doesn’t matter. A mother should be able to feed her child no matter the age or whether or not she breast or bottle feeds. Shame on Delta Airlines! If I fly in the future, I surely will not be flying Delta…I am a mother who breast-fed all her children. I am currently nursing my 7 month old daughter. If anyone ever told me that I couldn’t nurse my baby, they would be getting an earful. The will be no way that I would accept a blanket that has been tossed back and forth from passenger to passenger to cover my child. Gross….Hello….GERMS!!! Not to mention that when you put a blanket over your baby’s head to nurse, it gets pretty hot. Would you like to eat with a blanket over your head? I don’t think so.

Anyways, the link to the article is below. Feel free to comment. I would love to hear all sides. No foul language please.
