I know there are lots of babies in need so I couldn't help but donate all but 50 oz of my formerly 600 oz freezer stash. I kept a little in case of emergency, but now all I can think about is how hard I worked to pump that, and now what happens if I get in an accident or have surgery or for some other reason, have to stop nursing? My DD could have used that. Oh, well. The chances are slim and at least now I can say I helped another baby have BM for a whole month.

Most of what I thawed out ended up going to waste, so I figured I should donate it. For example, last week Juliana was sick and had a hard-time nursing, so I thawed out 15 oz of milk to try to spoon feed it to her, but she didn't want that either. So I decided to make her a smoothie with it, and should wouldn't drink the smoothie. I hated to see all of that going to waste so I donated almost all of it. At least now that's lots of room in my deep freeze and I can stock up when meat goes on sale.
