has anyone ever seen this? i wish i had enough milk for my own baby of course, but i wish i had so much that i could donate!!!

another question: if you were unable to produce milk for your baby, would you give him/her donated milk from the community? i'm not talking about a milk bank, i'm just talking about other mamas in your area with excess milk. my midwife has several mothers who she delivered for producing excess milk and has done this in the past with other women without milk or undergoing medical prodedures right after birth like chemo. kind of scares me, but given that she knows their complete medical histories and the fact that these moms were able to deliver at home (state regulated midwifery here) makes me wonder if its not a bad idea. now you might say that the moms might just not tell my midwife if there is a problem, well they do all the same lab work as an OB in my area due to the legislation just passed and also, if you cared so little about putting your baby at risk by feeding him/her diseased bm or just not getting tested, would you go through a natural childbirth? probably not...

any thoughts? ps my supply has gone up substantially since the domperidone and i am able to give her 2 bottles a day of bm!!!
