Become a Milk Bank Donor


*******************************************


When I had Emilia I accumulated a lot of extra milk that I never used and I ended up just having to throw away. This second time around I've pumped a lot less in part because of that reason.

Carson REFUSES to take a bottle and we're now to the point where we're transitioning him to a sippy cup. So, once again I'm left with PRECIOUS milk I don't want to go to waste.

I remember reading some literature about mothers donating milk and after some research I discovered that the Mother's Milk Bank of North Texas is always accepting donations. There are some pre-requisites you must meet to be able to donate. The questions are pretty stringent, not everyone is accepted.

Even though I'm in good health, I'm not able to contribute because I lived in Europe for more than five years during the mad cow disease scare. I'm really dissapointed! Nonetheless, I hope at least one person that reads this blog will be able to donate or know of someone that can do so.

What a better way to make a lasting difference in a child's life. Your gift will last a lifetime.

I saw a story about that on the news a month ago. It was very touching. I wish I had enough extra to be able to do that.

someone else i know checked in to this and she said (i guess when donating it to a hospital) that you had to pump it there. such a good cause though!!!
