I have been contemplating pumping my milk. Nursing is something that has always come easy to me…and I don't take that lightly! I have relatives and friends who were unable to nurse for various reasons. I had a hard time identifying with them, but was heartbroken for them, and what they and their babies were missing.
So I figured, hey, I will just pump and give it away! But its not quite as easy as all that. In my research I did come across a website called MilkShare. They put you in contact with real moms and families with a need for breast milk.
The other option I am considering is donating to local hospitals who use breast milk in their NICU. I need to do more research on that one, as I doubt I can just show up at the hospital with milk in tow.
I haven't come across any reasons not to do this as of yet…
…but I am still new in my research.
I need to know, what do you think?
