Many of you know of my challenge in breast feeding. I'm even taking reglan at this point and still supplementing. I'm talking 25 pills/tablets/capsules a day of supplements.
I ran out of formula to supplement last night so I went outside to grab a bag of frozen milk out of our outside freezer....THAWED! The addition to our house is in progress right now and they unplugged the freezer. I didn't even think about all that milk til I needed it. Over 50 bags, many hours of pumping. So many tears and frustration in those bags. All in the trash can literally! I'm in tears.

How long ago was it that they unplugged the freezer? It would be good for up to 24 hours. But it still sucks having to dump BM. I had about 6 bags left over from Hailey but they were over a year old and it was still hard to watch them thaw and dumped down the drain

Oh no! I kinda cringed yesterday when my MIL (who watches Morgan all day) said she warmed a bottle and Morgan didn't want it so it got dumped. I couldn't imagine 50 bags. I'm so sorry.
